BreakOUT! seeks to end the criminalization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth to build a safer and more just New Orleans.
We build on the rich cultural tradition of resistance in the South to build the power of LGBTQ youth ages 13-25 and directly impacted by the criminal justice system through youth organizing, healing justice, and leadership development programs.
The organization works predominately with LGBT teens of color, including undocumented teens. Their focus is on improving the safety of LGBT youth in New Orleans through public education, school outreach, and community training programs.
