In proud partnership with the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights, Kuchler Polk Weiner sponsored the inaugural Campaign for Children’s Rights public education series in March 2021.  With KPW’s support, the Campaign hosted 220 guests to openly discuss and brainstorm different topics for rethinking and reshaping Louisiana’s justice system into one that heals rather than harms, no longer targets children of color, and ultimately treats kids like kids.

The Campaign included lively online public discussions led by esteemed panelists, centering on topics such as Ending the Criminalization of Black Youth, Changing Our Lens: Building Kids Up, Not Breaking them Down, Rethinking our Response to Adolescent Behavior, and All Children are Redeemable: Abolishing Juvenile Life Without Parole.

In addition to the discussions, KPW’s support allowed the Center for Children’s Rights to raise nearly $43,000, which will greatly support the Center’s work to help kids connect with the resources they need to leave the justice system behind for good, to advance policing that treats kids like kids—not adults, and ultimately to end the needless and unwarranted criminalization of Black youth.

We stand in solidarity with those voices around the country who are calling for justice in response to the taking of black lives and who are demanding action and real change.

As Louisiana and Texas begin to reopen, we have enacted a return-to-work policy aligned with state and local guidelines to protect the safety of our employees and the community.
