One Voice proudly continues our work in Louisiana, enhancing our role as a southern regional hub for policy advocacy, base-building and training. Much like our successful work in Mississippi, we work to advance the development of a progressive advocacy and legislative infrastructure and nonpartisan technical assistance and training for state and local elected officials in the State of Louisiana.
Since starting our work in Louisiana, One Voice has worked and will continue to work directly with elected officials and communities to increase awareness of key legislative issues, as well as identification of entry points in the political process where all voices can be heard. Key to our approach is using the tools of research and policy analysis, trained and connected community leadership, and building community-based structures through which broad public involvement can be organized and sustained.
It is our hope to use our proven, strategic approach to achieve systemic change throughout the state by connecting the engagement and advocacy efforts of grassroots groups with progressive policy-makers.
