  • 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
  • Why "3,803 Lives Too Many"?

    •  In 2013, 3,803 abortions were performed at the two abortion facilities in Caddo and Bossier parishes, making the combination of Shreveport and Bossier City the "abortion capital" of Louisiana.  In 2013, 9,976 abortions were performed in Louisiana.* Click here for more info on statistics.
    • The LLM North is the beginning of an effort to save these lives by motivating the faith community to reach out in service and education.
