Mossville Environmental Action Now

Working together to achieve environmental health justice

Mossville Environmental Action Now (MEAN) has been working for more than 30 years on behalf of the residents of Mossville, Louisiana on multiple fronts: advocating for environmental justice, educating residents about the health and environmental impacts of toxic pollution; compelling federal and state environmental agencies to enforce human rights laws, and advocating for health services, relocation and pollution reduction to improve the lives and health of residents.

For generations, residents of Mossville, Louisiana – a town founded by former slaves and the site of more than a dozen refining and chemical industry facilities – have been disproportionately exposed to toxic pollution. The Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform, Coming Clean, and the Center for American Progress highlight the story of Delma and Christine Bennett, longtime residents of Mossville, who have personally experienced the effects of toxic pollution and environmental racism.
