SCI Acadiana’s mission is to participate in legislative, judicial, regulatory, public relations or other advocacy activities, including humanitarian activities that demonstrate the constructive role of hunters in society, in order to protect the freedom to hunt and to advocate hunting and hunters. We will engage and participate in projects that educate the public, and particularly youth, about the constructive role of hunting and hunters in society, which may include the granting of scholarships to SCI and the SCI Foundation educational programs .
Who we are
SCI is unique among conservation groups for maintaining an active Political Action Committee (PAC). PACs are the only legal vehicle for making direct contributions to the campaigns of U.S. federal candidates.
SCI-PAC is led by a Chairman and Board of Trustees, who in turn rely upon up-to-the-minute guidance and information from SCI’s network of consultants and staff on the ground in Washington, D.C. SCI-PAC is constantly fielding requests for support throughout the election cycle.
Our strategy is simple – support our friends and defeat our enemies! All to often, hunting can become a political football in the nation’s Capital. We rely on our friends in Congress to band together and defeat all attempts to restrict our hunting heritage. And when Election Day comes, our friends rely on us for support in the ballot box and in the political field.
