Join a day of action to stop Formosa Plastics from building a mega-polluting petrochemical plant in St. James Parish, Louisiana. We are at a pivotal moment in this fight!
The power of the people, the leadership of RISE St. James, and robust legal opposition have delayed construction of the proposed plastics plant. President Biden can stop Formosa Plastics once and for all and hold true to his commitment to prioritize environmental justice.
Urge President Biden and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to revoke Formosa’s federal permit.
