The nonprofit sector is an essential player in Louisiana's public policy arena.

Come to Louisiana's Capital this March 8th and 9th, for an important discussion on the role of nonprofits in public policy and how we can affect policy changes that will improve conditions for our organizations and our clients.

Are We Moving in the Right Direction?

Find out how Louisianans feel about the direction state policies are moving us in: Which issues do we find most important? How do we grade our government on its many services? What do we think about our state taxes and public spending priorities?


LANO would like to thank the Louisiana State Museum and our Presenting Sponsor, the Foundation for Louisiana for making this event possible.
