Jordan Prether started this petition to Governor John Bel Edwards

The law says you cannot legally be an adult until you hit age of majority, which is 18 in the state of Louisiana. However, even though you cannot be an adult, you can be tried as one at the  age of 17 by the “Raise the Age” law passed. I would like to lower the age of majority to 17. Those who can be emancipated fear to attempt it because of abusive family or maybe they don’t know how to go about it, but this I see the way of change. Please, put a dent in ageism.
