Dear Friends,

We have just a few weeks left in the legislative session, and that means that Governor Edwards faces very tough choices about the direction of our state. The legislature has moved clearly on a number of critical policy areas – things like protecting women’s sports, expanding access to self-defense for Louisiana residents, and capping government spending.

Now, it’s time for Governor Edwards to decide if he will join in supporting a distinctively Louisiana value, or be swayed by President Biden and liberals in Washington, D.C. We hope for the former.

And, for the governor, siding with Louisiana is a pretty safe bet. Polling data has consistently shown that more than 66% of Americans are in favor of protecting women’s sports – and the numbers in Louisiana are thought to be even higher. In fact, 82% of Louisiana legislators who voted on this bill voted YES, including a large contingency of Democrats.

In fact, here’s what one friend of LFF, Monroe Democrat Senator Katrina Jackson said about it:

“After reviewing the bill and doing research on the differences in male and female bodies, I am voting yes on this bill. Men and women distribute their weight differently, have different muscle mass and bone density. Studies show that even after gender affirming hormones, persons born male still have an advantage over their female counterparts. 

I do not believe that ‘transgenders’ should ever be excluded from participating in sports based on their birth gender. However, to allow students to select which team they join could give them an unfair athletic advantage over other students. Although I understand your advocacy, all things considered and fairness to all I believe each student should participate in sports based on their gender at birth.”

If that’s not a message for Gov. John Bel Edwards to consider, I don’t know what is.

We need your voice on this issue. Please click here to contact Governor Edwards’ office and ask him to sign SB 156 into law.

 

We have just a few days left before the 2021 LFF Leadership Academy, in Baker, La.! Attendees will kick off their intensive sessions this Sunday, June 6th. There are just a few seats remaining, so register your 16-to-22 year old for this unique and impactful event.

This Academy remains true to the biblical, historical, and constitutional foundations of America. Attendees learn leadership skills, life-purpose strategies, advanced communication techniques, public speaking skills, counter-culture methods, and a perspective on government that’s biblically based. 

Congressman Mike Johnson and his wife Kelly will kick off our Sunday night event – and it’s open to the public! RSVP required here.

Mike represents Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District and also brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and a love for truth, family values, and freedom of liberty!

LFF and our team understand how important it is that we train the next generation of leaders as part of our culture-building efforts. We would be grateful for your continued prayers and financial support as we make the final pushes for important legislation impacting life, liberty, and limited government, and as we continue to promote Biblical worldview among the next generation.

In His Service,


Gene Mills
President, Louisiana Family Forum
