St. James Parish is our home.
We need to protect it for generations to come.
That starts with stopping one of the biggest and most toxic chemical plants on the planet, Formosa Plastics.
St. James Parish should be investing in smarter, healthier, long-term industries.
Yet the St. James Parish Council continues to prioritize risky projects in dying industries.
Our community deserves better.
That’s why we’re coming together as a community to tell the Parish Council:

St. James Parish Families Oppose Formosa
The facts are clear: Formosa Plastics is a bad deal for St. James Parish families.
Across Louisiana, residents are building our region’s future as part of the fast-growing renewable energy industry that will fuel their economies for decades to come.
Here in St. James Parish, we should be benefiting from these same jobs. Our Parish Council keeps tying us to dying companies with no future.
Instead of investing in growing industries, they keep pushing old ideas and betting on financially risky companies like Formosa Plastics.
Oil and plastics producers are suffering worldwide losses due to the pandemic, and industry giants like Shell, Exxon Mobil, and Chevron reported “some of their worst financial results in history” last year. As a result, many producers are shutting their doors and taking their jobs with them, including here in Convent, Louisiana where Shell recently closed its refinery and laid off 700 area residents.
The last thing St. James Parish needs is more dying industry.
We’re coming together as concerned residents because we know we need to look out for one another. And we need to stop Formosa Plastics.
