In Louisiana, pollution makes us sick. Greenhouse gas emissions are intensifying and accelerating climate change, storms and coastal land loss. The oil and gas infrastructure damages our precious wetlands. And constant petrochemical industry expansion continues to wipe historic African American communities off the map.
The Louisiana Bucket Brigade believes our state is worth saving.
Our work supports grassroots action to create informed, sustainable communities free from industrial pollution. For more than 20 years, we’ve helped residents and community leaders amplify their voices and protect their health, their homes and their way of life. By hastening the transition away from fossil fuels, we’re working to create a more livable state for everyone in Louisiana.
