Clarice Friloux

Clarice Friloux of Grand Bois in Lafourche Parish is a long-time board member who first came to LEAN over concerns with a oilfield waste disposal facility adjacent to her primarily Native American, low-income community. When Exxon dumped more than 80 semi-trailer truck loads of waste from Alabama at the dump site she and her neighbors became sick. Her fight was the focus of a CBS hour long special hosted by Ed Bradley. She continues to lead the struggle through her community group, Guardians of our Land and Water.
