The 2nd Annual Life March for North Louisiana was held Saturday, Jan. 17.

A crowd of thousands gathered at the Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City and marched across the (closed) Texas Street Bridge and into Shreveport’s Festival Plaza for the main program. The crowd included many of the area’s best known Christian leaders and top federal, state and local officials.

The Louisiana Life March (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 theme for this year’s event was “Defend the Defenseless,” which comes from Isaiah 1:17. ​

The LLM North event is sponsored by Louisiana Right to Life, in conjunction with the Northwest Louisiana Baptist Association, Louisiana Family Forum, Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops, Ark-La-Tex Crisis Pregnancy Center, and Heart of Hope Ministries.
