What is the Louisiana Life March (LLM) North?
- The LLM North is a chance for the citizens of Shreveport, Bossier City, Ruston, Monroe, Natchioches, and all of North Louisiana to stand together for an abortion-free Louisiana.
- The event will consist of a historic march from Bossier City's "Louisiana Boardwalk" across the Texas Street bridge to a gathering in Shreveport's Festival Plaza. At Festival Plaza, nationally-known speakers and local music groups will lead prayer and presentation. After the gathering, a "Life Ministry Mobilization" area will plug you into all the pro-life efforts in your communities
