The Louisiana Bucket Brigade is a non-profit environmental health and justice organization working with communities that neighbor oil refineries and chemical plants. The Bucket Brigade helps communities hold these industries accountable for pollution by providing assistance with community organizing, education, media outreach, and gathering evidence against industry, including training communities to use an EPA-approved "bucket" to conduct air sampling in order to document toxic air pollution.
