Louise Will Stop Tar Sands

THE STORY:

Louise Moorer moved to the Africatown/Plateau community with her parents after graduating high school in Riderwood, AL. She is a retired nurse's assistant. Louise is active in the Mobile Environmental Justice Action Coalition, the Africatown Community Development Corporation, and the Mobile County Community Emergency Response Team. She is also an usher at the Yorktown Missionary Baptist Church.

Canadian tar sands arrive in Mobile via rail through the hear of Africatown and industry is looking to build a small city of above ground storage tanks to accommodate the expansion of rail shipments. Louise is committed to stopping any new tar sands infrastructure from being sited in her community.

By being able to go to the heart of tar sands exploitation, Louise can better inform her community as well as other communities in the region which are facing not just tar sands transport and refining activity but also the opening of tar sands mines similar to those in the Athabascan tar sands formation.
