THE STORY:

Mae Jones has been a resident of the Africatown/Plateau community of Mobile, Alabama since 1975 when she moved here from Detroit, MI. She is a retired state mental health employee and Union Steward of the Teamsters Local 97. She is a member of Mobile Environmental Justice Action Coalition and the Africatown Community Development Corporation as well as a clerk as 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. Mae 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, Mae 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.
