The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights is a non-profit law office that provides juvenile defense for New Orleans area children, representation for Louisiana children facing or serving life without parole, advocates for policies that reduce the number of children in the justice system, and seeks better alternatives to arrest and incarceration. On March 28, 2019, Kuchler Polk Weiner, LLC sponsored Celebration for Children’s Rights, an annual event benefiting the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights. This year’s program included a personal account of LCCR’s success of representing Louisiana children convicted of life without parole and highlighted other LCCR success stories. LCCR began a new tradition by presenting its first Pascal Calogero Champion of Justice Award, an annual award recognizing an individual or organization that is positively impacting the lives of children in the justice system.
KPW is honored to support and sponsor such an exceptional cause.
