Happy Hour with Hightower at the Lowdown Chat & Chew Cafe: Sharon Lavigne & Anne Rolfes

For decades, giant petrochemical corporations have piled into the poor — and predominantly Black — parishes of Louisiana, wreaking toxic havoc from the pollution of refineries and plastics. Now, local communities are fighting back — and winning. Get your brew in hand and come meet Sharon Lavigne of RISE St. James and Anne Rolfes of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, as Hightower chats with them about taking on Big Plastics and more.
