Help Stop the Proposed NOLA East Landfill
This is an appeal to your social compassion, environmental understanding and economic sense. The approved landfill in East New Orleans is a travesty of democracy, side stepping public hearings and pushing through a proposal that sacrifices a community and wildlife refuge for an “easy” solution to the complicated rebuilding efforts New Orleans is faced with. Mayor Nagin has accepted a short-term solution that provides city funds but leaves a neighborhood voiceless and a protected marsh and floodplain in jeopardy.
