Who We Are

Louisiana Family Forum is committed to advancing life, liberty, and
limited government in the great state of Louisiana!

Founded in 1998, LFF is a nonpartisan, nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to advancing life, liberty, and limited government.LFF is one of 31 other state-based Family Policy Councils (FPC’s) around the country. Many of these organizations are the leading pro-life and pro-family organizations in their respective states. LFF is a 501c3 non-profit corporation under the IRS tax code. LFF engages in research and education on a wide range of public policy issues to strengthen the well-being, health, and safety of Louisiana families – its individual members and the collective unit. We have an independent board of directors and are responsible for raising our own financial support.

We communicate and cooperate with other stakeholders in order to promote strong families, advance First Amendment liberties, and the right to express one’s faith. We champion free-market economics, entrepreneurship, and private property.

We are committed to training the next generation of Louisiana leaders. We equip them to advance life, liberty, and limited government. We challenge them to high moral character.
