Description

The Louisiana Bucket Brigade is a 501(c)(3) environmental health and justice organization working with communities that neighbor the state’s oil refineries and chemical plants.

We use grassroots action to create an informed, healthy society that holds the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution to hasten the transition from fossil fuels. Our vision is a Louisiana that is a healthy, prosperous, pollution-free, and just state where people and the environment are valued over profit.

Purpose of Position

The Canvass Coordinator will lead the summer “Louisiana to Rehoboth Beach” canvass. This is not a fundraising canvass or a door-to-door canvass but an information-sharing canvass among visitors to Rehoboth.

Louisiana in Rehoboth                                                              

The Louisiana Bucket Brigade is engaged in a campaign to prevent the construction of a dozen gas export terminals in Louisiana. Because our state and local governments support this construction, our advocacy is focused on the federal government, including regulatory agencies like the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

As part of this advocacy, we will bring Louisiana to Rehoboth Beach in the summer of 2022. We are targeting Rehoboth because President Biden has a vacation home there and because of the large number of D.C. residents – including government employees – who vacation there. Via events (gumbo cook-offs, Mardi Gras in Rehoboth) and participation in local initiatives like beach clean-ups, we will deliver a clear message: nobody’s coastline and culture should be destroyed by export gas terminals.

We will station a team in Rehoboth Beach from the end of June through Labor Day and will hold events in Washington, D.C. throughout the summer to complement the work in Rehoboth.
