COVID19 HAS SHOWN US THAT POLICIES MATTER.

 

WHETHER SHORT- OR LONG-TERM, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT OUR STATE BASES DECISIONS ON SOUND DATA AND RESEARCH.​​

Like many businesses in Louisiana, we at Louisiana Appleseed are doing our best to comply and respond to the resounding needs of our community in the face of the COVID19 epidemic. Our office is working remotely as we navigate this new normal.

Below you will find COVID19-related information. Louisiana Appleseed is issuing bulletins to legal service providers and the general public. Please check back regularly for updates and sign up for our newsletter.

Stay Safe. Stay Home.
