Louisiana Bucket Brigade

New Orleans, Louisiana



The environmental health and justice organization works with communities, regulatory agencies, and industry to reduce toxic pollution from oil refineries, chemical plants, and other hazardous sites. This two-year grant supports the Brigade’s Istrouma Health Partnership, which is conducting a cumulative health-impact assessment of toxic emissions in Istrouma, a vulnerable community located adjacent to a petrochemical complex.
