Remove Confederate Monuments from Louisiana Courthouses
This petition had 619 supporters
In 2017, the courthouses in several Louisiana Parishes still prominently display Confedrate monuments and symbols at its entrance ways as a demonstration of heroic reverence to the Confederacy with no mention of what these “heroes” actually fought and died believing. This sanitized version of the Confederacy is paraded in front of every African American in the very place that all Louisianans go to seek justice and equality under the law. As an African American going through the doors of these courthouses, you are constantly reminded that the Confederate cause was a just cause which is seemingly endorsed by our state government.
