The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

New Author: Elizabeth Jenkins

From Louis Toliver Jr:

I had the recent opportunity to meet Lizzy through working with the Acadiana P.R.I.D.E. Festival. I have started building a strong relationship with Lizzy and her partner DJ (Donna Jean) by being a member of Louisiana Trans Advocates. What I am coming to realize through people like Lizzy, I meet, is that Louisiana is full of compassionate, loving, artistic talent and should take pride in such a unique, diverse pool of individuals representing this wonderful state. I welcome Elizabeth Jenkins to the Louisiana Words family and hope that she continues to use her voice in anyway she pleases.
