What We Do

We defend children in the juvenile justice system, standing up for their rights and helping them achieve their goals, through direct representation and policy advocacy.

Defending Children

Defending Children

LCCR defends the rights and dignity of young people in Louisiana’s juvenile justice system by providing holistic and humane legal representation – and helping other public defenders do the same.

Building Opportunity

Building Opportunity

We connect children to the supports they need to stay out of the justice system and thrive at home and in school.

Transforming Juvenile Justice

Transforming Juvenile Justice

We work towards a transformed juvenile justice system that is safe, smart, cost-effective, and fair.  We fight for kids in local government and organize the Louisiana Youth Justice Coalition to advocate for them at the state legislature.
