Louisiana Bucket Brigade

Anne Rolfes is the founding executive director of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, a nonprofit environmental health and justice organization that gives communities near oil refineries and chemical plants the tools to document air pollution. Anne teaches residents near Louisiana's numerous petrochemical facilities how to use air samplers to document pollution incidents in their neighborhoods. Previously, Anne was a member of the negotiating team for the agreement between Shell Motiva and the Concerned Citizens of Norco that resulted in the buy out of contaminated residential properties. She has authored several reports on the effects of petrochemical production on communities in Louisiana, and has authored Shell Shocked Refugees, a report about Nigeria's Ogoni refugees and their struggle with Shell oil.
