Louisiana State Director
Candice Battiste is a bold, progressive advocate for her community and state. She is a proud graduate of Louisiana State University and the Southern University Law Center where she served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice and was a recipient of the prestigious Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Fellowship.

She is the past Shreveport-Bossier Field Director with Citizen SHE United and the Unanimous Jury Coalition, Vice President of the Women's Democratic Club of Northwest Louisiana, currently serves on the executive board of the New Leaders Council- Louisiana Chapter, and was recently selected as a United Nations Association Delegate. When Candice is not discussing progressive politics, she can be found at one of many Louisiana food and music festivals or curling up with a good book.
