MOVING
FORWARD,
TOGETHER

The Descendants Project is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established to support descendant communities in the 

river parishes working together to dismantle the legacies of slavery and to achieve a healed and liberated future.

WHAT IS THE 
DESCENDANTS PROJECT?

 

The Descendants Project is an emerging organization committed to the intergenerational healing and flourishing of the Black descendant community in the Louisiana river parishes. The lands of the river parishes hold the intersecting histories of enslavement, settler colonialism, and environmental degradation.
