Dear Friends,

LFF believes that our nation's motto, "In God We Trust," is essential for a balanced and well-rounded education. We want to ensure that as many Louisiana students as possible are reminded of this nation’s Christian roots every day at school! It’s also Louisiana law now.

To achieve this goal, we have launched a Classroom to Classroom campaign to provide 1,750 Louisiana schools with a package of 12"x 18" - ”In God We Trust" posters, free of charge. These posters are intended to be placed in every classroom so that every child encounters America's motto every single day in Louisiana. It's a small but significant step in nurturing a sense of legacy and connectedness, which is foundational to this nation's “experiment in liberty."

We want to make a difference in Louisiana schools, but to do so we need your help. Please help us reach every Louisiana school, every classroom, and every single student with a modest donation. $57.50 reaches an entire school and 50 classrooms; help us reach all 1,750 schools in Louisiana!

Your donation delivers extraordinary impact in writing the next chapter of Louisiana history!

Last week, the US Supreme Court refused to allow a federal judge in Louisiana to proceed with plans to supervise the creation of a new state congressional map for potential use in the upcoming general election next year.

The justices dismissed an urgent request from civil rights organizations who argue that a map drawn by Republicans for the 2022 midterm election disadvantages black voters and violates the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which prohibits racial discrimination in voting.

Justice Samuel Alito transferred the request to the entire court, and there were no publicly voiced disagreements with the decision. Justice Kentanji Brown Jackson provided a brief opinion concurring with the result.

Jackson wrote, "Nothing in our decision not to summarily reverse the Fifth Circuit should be taken to endorse the practice of issuing an extraordinary writ of mandamus in these or similar circumstances."

The decision affirms a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, which had already prevented U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick from conducting a hearing to establish a court-mandated map. However, this matter isn't definitively resolved, as there's a related case pending in the appeals court.


Earlier this year, the Louisiana Department of Health published Louisiana’s 2022 abortion report, showing developing news for the pro-life movement. 

Louisiana’s abortion ban has registered a 39% improvement over previous years’ abortion rates. In 2022, 4,570 abortions were reported in Louisiana while Louisiana's complete ban was still being deliberated in courts of law. Still, that's too many in a state with clear prohibitions! Of equal concern are the Biden administration's tactics to make mail order abortion (and the like) available nationally, on international waters, and on military bases. Those issues are being sorted out successfully in state and federal courts!

Thanks to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Life is winning in Louisiana. There is much to do before it is said of Louisiana, “they truly value life!"


Friends, Louisiana’s runoff election is just three weeks away on November 18th! Now is the time to do your research and encourage your friends and family to vote. As Christians, we have a duty to make our voices heard and advance biblical principles in the public sphere. Let’s not waste this opportunity!


In His Service,

Gene Mills
President, Louisiana Family Forum
