Chris Broussard

I am honored to support, endorse, and partner with the Douglass Leadership Institute. It’s work in criminal justice reform and strengthening the Black family, two issues of paramount importance to the liberation of African-Americans, is rooted in the Christian tradition of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
