CONCORDIA PARISH, Louisiana – The SPLC Action Fund today endorsed Pamela Poole for coroner in Concordia Parish. Ms. Poole, a leader in her community, is focused on ensuring greater transparency and community engagement in the coroner’s office.
“While there is often not a lot of attention paid to the position of coroner, it is of incredible importance,” said Madison Hollon, program manager of political campaigns for the SPLC Action Fund. “It is essential that those who serve in this position put fairness and transparency first. We believe Ms. Poole will do just that which is why we are endorsing her.”
The SPLC Action Fund is focused on lifting up communities of color, particularly in the Deep South, who face systemic oppression, poverty and structural racism. To overcome these injustices, the organization is committed to reimagining the political, economic and social systems that sustain them to create a world where all people can thrive.
In pursuit of this bold agenda, the SPLC Action Fund supports candidates who share its commitment to addressing the deep inequities that plague our nation.
