BATON ROUGE, La. – Quentin Anthony Anderson will formally announce his candidacy for the United States Congress in Louisiana’s 6th District on Sunday, March 17 in downtown Baton Rouge. This announcement comes in light of the recent redrawing of the district, which now stretches from Caddo Parish in northwest Louisiana to East Baton Rouge Parish, encompassing a diverse and dynamic majority-Black electorate.

Event Details:

  • Date: Sunday, March 17, 2024
  • Time: 5:00 PM
  • Location: North Blvd Town Square, Downtown Baton Rouge
  • Weather: The event is planned to be held outdoors, weather permitting. Contingency details will be shared as needed.

Anderson, a Baton Rouge native and small business owner, has a long-standing history of community engagement and advocacy. His extensive background, from leading significant social justice initiatives to championing economic and educational reforms, underscores his commitment to fostering a society where justice and prosperity are accessible to all.

Anderson’s campaign is built on a foundation of promoting jobs, justice, and ensuring that every voice within the newly delineated district is heard and valued. His dedication to these principles is mirrored in his resolve to address the most pressing issues facing the district today, from healthcare accessibility to educational equity and economic development.

“This is a campaign about moving Louisiana forward,” said Anderson. “This district’s strength lies in its diversity, resilience, and shared commitment to a brighter future. On Sunday, I’ll outline a platform that champions policies that uplift every member of our community, ensuring that our collective future is built on the bedrock of fairness, opportunity, and justice.”

Anderson, 35, is the founder and owner of the communications firm Anderson Creative as well as the Director of The Justice Alliance, a nonprofit organization that organizes the My Louisiana Equality & Equity Summit. He is the former communications director for Together Baton Rouge and Together Louisiana. In 2020, he ran unsuccessfully for East Baton Rouge Metro Council, coming 106 votes shy of the runoff with eventual winner Councilwoman Carolyn Coleman. A graduate of McKinley Senior High School in Baton Rouge, he earned his undergraduate degree from Louisiana Tech University and his law degree from Louisiana State University.

The campaign kickoff event invites all residents of the 6th District, community leaders, and media representatives to join Quentin at the North Boulevard Town Square on Sunday, March 17 at 5pm.
