About Us

Green The Church Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit sustainability
initiative and environmental justice organization—of and for the
Black Church in our state—working to promote sustainable practices,
raise awareness about environmental challenges, and empower
Black Church communities to take action. We help churches with the
life and death work of ensuring our communities survive the effects
of disasters and environmental racism.

We welcome anyone from our state to join in our mission to build power for change.


We build influence and capacity through targeted, localized efforts to support our communities in gaining access to green energy, and safe, clean air and water.
