Louisiana Rejects Amendment #5

Share This

Many of the results from today's Election Day are still not known. Still, one thing is clear: hardworking taxpayers rejected constitutional Amendment #5. This is a huge victory for Louisiana's working people, particularly our schools and the students they serve.

The Louisiana Federation of Teachers and School Employees worked tirelessly to spread awareness about this potentially damaging Amendment in the lead up to Election Day. Through our members' diligent work all over the state, we reached tens of thousands of voters through texts, calls, digital media campaigns, and radio advertisements.

Thank you to all the voters who decided to prioritize Louisiana's fire and police departments, educators and students by voting NO on Amendment #5.
