BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Sen. Regina Barrow will be honored as a 2021 Legislative Champion in January.

“I am pleased that my efforts to improve the lives of Louisiana’s hardworking families are being recognized,” Barrow said. “But I will not stop until the job is completely done and people across the state are paid a true living wage which will decrease poverty and bridge the disparity gap.”

Barrow’s legislative efforts have focused on helping children and families by promoting education and paving ways to improve the livelihood of families. She is the chair of the Senate Select Committee on Women and Children.

“It is my great honor to congratulate you on being selected,” Charmaine Caccioppi, executive vice president and COO of United Way of Southeast Louisiana said. “During the 2021 state legislative session, your efforts to remove barriers and create opportunities for families living under the ALICE threshold were unparalleled.”

Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, or ALICE, is the legislation that defined basic survival income level to households with income above the official federal poverty level.

The celebration will be on Jan. 12 at Copper Vine which is located at 1001 Poydras Street in New Orleans from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
