About Us

When Louisiana’s fenceline communities need a strong, action-driven ally, Louisiana Bucket Brigade is there. Since 2000, we’ve worked with towns and neighborhoods next to the state’s oil refineries, chemical plants and other petrochemical infrastructure — the places most impacted by pollution. We partner with the communities to help residents amplify their voices and challenge the petrochemical industry’s relentless expansion. Being on the ground week after week in our partner communities is the lifeblood of our work.

Our organization began with a clear purpose: to support communities whose health and homes are devastated by the petrochemical industry. The air sampling bucket exemplifies our commitment to putting power in the hands of people, and getting these communities in the media and elevating their work is a core part of what we do. We also generate tools to help people document pollution.

The Bucket Brigade is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, supported entirely by private donations from individuals, foundations and other like-minded organizations. Ongoing financial support is critical to fund the day-to-day work necessary to achieve our partner communities’ goals.


Our Mission

Louisiana Bucket Brigade uses grassroots action to hold the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution. We work to create an informed, healthy society that hastens the transition from fossil fuels.


Our Vision

Louisiana is a healthy, prosperous, pollution-free and just state where people and the environment are valued over profit.
