About Us

Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FFLIC) is a statewide grassroots, multi-generational membership-based organization committed to abolishing all forms of state violence against Black youth -- especially youth in New Orleans -- through transformative organizing, holistic leadership development, and advocacy.

Our mission, as established by the parents and grandparents of such children who founded and continue to lead FFLIC, is to divest from the juvenile justice system and invest in community-based alternatives, including policies that transform our educational system into one that truly serves young people.

FFLIC is building a movement led by parents and youth in Louisiana to end mass incarceration and school pushouts. We are mobilizing low wealth parents of impacted children transforming them into effective advocates and organizers that can demand the change of policies and practices that are pushing our children out of school and into the prison pipeline. Our work to that end continues to be the implementation of policy-driven campaigns on ending suspensions and expulsions to advocacy case work with individual parents and children.
