Primary Phone: 5042189782
Name: Gina Womack
Agency type: Non Profit
Beginning date for service:09/12/2011
Agency carries worker's compensation insurance.
Agency has a need for additional volunteers.
We need interns to assist with outreach efforts. We also need assistance with our work surrounding the school-to-prison pipeline which would include administrative duties (typing, filing, research). We would also need assistance with fundraising and overall development.
FFLIC would be a great fit for anyone seeking experience not just in the non-profit world, but for someone who is passionate about social justice. Our members and those we assist are primarily African-Americans and the working poor. You will get wonderful hands-on experience and you will learn about the landscape of education reform and the juvenile justice system.
FFLIC is statewide membership-based organization that fights for a better life for all of Louisiana's youth, especially those involved in or targeted by the juvenile justice system. As mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and allies we believe in and implement a model of organizing that is people and community centered and explicitly anti-racist. We engage in education, community building and leadership development through strategically chosen campaigns in order to empower individuals, families and communities to transform currently oppressive systems and institutions into ones that uphold justice for our families.
