Elain Ellerbe
State Director, Right on Crime

Elain Ellerbe joined Right on Crime in September, 2016 as the State Director for Louisiana and as a Policy Analyst. Her expertise includes over thirty years of business and non-profit management, having co-founded with her family the non-profit, Refined By Fire Ministries. For the past 20 years, Elain has focused her work in the area of prison reentry programming. Elain’s expertise in reentry program development and implementation as well as providing programs that address the special issues facing families impacted by the criminal justice system have been recognized nationally and in Louisiana. In 2013, Elain was named to the Louisiana Justice Hall of Fame, along with her husband Michael, posthumously, for their life long work in the area of reentry and was also selected as an Esprit de Femme Honoree by the LSU Women’s Center. In 2014 Elain was selected by the Louisiana Women’s Legislative Caucus as their Heroine of the Year, for her commitment to assist the incarcerated and their families.

Elain holds a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice from Liberty University and is presently working on her Masters in Children and Family Advocacy / Public Policy. She is certified in a number of reentry evidence-based and cognitive behavioral therapy programs to include Nurturing Parenting, Inside/Out Dad, Bridges Out of Poverty, Victim Awareness and Moral Recognation Therapy.

Elain’s work presently with Right on Crime in Louisiana has been focused on monitoring the Louisiana Justice Reinvestment Task Force as the group works to identify the drivers to the prison population and provide recommendations for criminal justice reform legislation to be enacted during the 2017 Louisiana Legislature. Right on Crime also works on reform efforts to include Civil Asset Forfeiture, Mens Rea and Pre-Trial/Bail Bond issues.

Current Topic


     11/17 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?” Wednesday, November 22 at 7p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, November 21)
