A lot of people criticize the NIMBY or “Not in My Back Yard” mentality. I think it’s great. If people stand up for their own interests, then you get a more efficient distribution of externalities. Locally focused organizations are often the most effective because the people are much more deeply invested. That’s likely the case with Louisiana Bucket Brigade, which is a New Orleans, LA based non-profit “environmental health and justice organization working with communities that neighbor the state’s oil refineries and chemical plants.” It’s all about holding industry accountable for the pollution that they create.

How does Louisiana Bucket Brigade do their work? They give “easy-to-use air sampling devices” to “people who live next to industry to document pollution in their neighborhoods.” They combine this with “education, assistance with organizing, media and other types of sampling (water, soil, seafood),” to maximize the impact that they can make on the communities that they work in (you can read more about their programs here). If you want to read up on how effective the Louisiana Bucket Brigade has been, check out this 10 year report on their accomplishments. If you’d like to play a role in how the next 10 year report turns out, then you should take a look at Louisiana Bucket Brigade’s Internships. They don’t have an Internships page, but they do post their positions on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for unpaid interns in Human Resources, Petrochemical Accident Research, and Graphics and Communication Design. These internship look really interesting, so if you’re looking to be in NOLA, check them out.
