Flood into Baton Rouge Rally was the capstone of a 150 mile march from Grand Isle to the Governor’s Mansion. Marchers carried water from the Gulf to call attention to Jindal’s decision to sign SB469.

At the rally, marchers joined people from all around Louisiana as they poured their ‘troubled water’ on Governor Jindal’s lawn!
