In celebration of our 2 year anniversary, we made this timeline to reflect back on 2 years of movement building, community organizing, and victories fighting the criminalization of LGBTQ youth in New Orleans, LA!
Also, enjoy this poem written by a BreakOUT! member for our 2 year anniversary:
Two years ago, a group of youth got together to make a change!
“We Deserve Better!,” our campaign within range.
So we gathered together, with every letter of the queer alphabet-
L-G-B-T-Q-I–Q-A…well, you get it.
And we decided that BreakOUT! was born!
So we battled the Mayor, the Chief, the NOPD,
And let them know that this change must happen immediately!
