Davante will be the first out LGBTQ+ person elected statewide in Louisiana and the first out Black LGBTQ+ person elected in Louisiana!
Davante Lewis is a lifelong Louisiana resident who’s dedicated his life to bringing real solutions to Louisiana’s working families. Raised by his single mother alongside three sisters, Davante knows firsthand what it’s like for a family to struggle to keep their house cool in the summer and cool in the summer.
That’s why he got to work passing legislation to raise the minimum wage, stop predatory payday lending, and protect student loan borrowers with the Louisiana Budget Project. Now, Davante wants to bring those bold, new solutions to Louisiana’s utility system and make our basic necessities affordable, reliable, and just.
