Our first stop is the Mississippi River, just above New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico, south of Baton Rouge.  At this stop, our collection explores how the Mississippi River has defined this setting, bringing mobility and wealth as well as hazards -- both environmental and political.

This is where we will archive evidence of many sources of pollution and environmental injustice in Louisiana’s River Parishes.
