Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism | Amistad Research Center

Name: Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism

Historical Note: The Louisiana Coalition Against Nazism and Racism (LCARN) was a bipartisan political action committee formed in 1989 in opposition to David Duke’s political ascendance in Louisiana. It was co-founded by Dr. Lawrence Powell and and Dr. Lance Hill who served as the organization’s executive director. Other prominent members include Rev. James Stovall and Beth Rickey. It was incorporated on March 5th, 1990. The organization sought to popularize and expose David Duke’s affiliations with hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and Duke’s history of racist and anti-Semitic statements and inclinations to the public through avenues such as brochures, pamphlets, and television and newspaper spots. During Duke’s 1990 senate campaign, LCARN raised nearly $500,000 to achieve this goal. The group remained active until 1992, but it was reorganized in 2016 with the same goals when David Duke ran in the United States senatorial election again.
