We are a coalition of local, regional and national organizations. Our members include:



In the southeastern Louisiana bayou parishes of Lafourche and Terrebonne, BISCO builds the voice and power of local residents to address the most pressing issues facing their communities. The disasters of the last decade — Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008, the BP Oil Drilling Disaster in 2010, and the River Flood of 2011 — have severely impacted our two parishes. The fallout from these disasters may seem local, but are important regionally and nationally.

Grand Bayou Indians Village is one of the most remote Native American Communities located at the most southern reaches of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. It is one of the rare Tribal Communities today still accessible only by boat. Historically they are primarily linked to the Chawasha Tribe, but like many other separate and distinct Tribes within the State that are home to a multitude of many Native American communities, the majority of our tribes are located on the coast and in the marsh of this beautiful ecosystem. Grand Bayou Indian Village is one such community; unique, diverse, passionate about their traditions and way of life, and a people of great heart.
Coastal Communities Consulting (CCC) is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization that provides technical assistance, economic development, social support services, and continued disaster assistance to rural entrepreneurs and their families. Our guiding principle is that rural economies depend on the intersection between strong businesses and strong families. Rural enterprises are often staffed or financed by family members, and their financial investments primarily fund asset-building with a familial structure. Therefore, placing an equal emphasis on both is central to a vibrant rural economy.
TELC is part of Tulane University School of Law's environmental law program and has become one of Louisiana’s premier public interest legal services organizations, known especially for its work on environmental justice issues. On behalf of their clients, TELC students and supervising attorneys litigate environmental citizen suits to abate industrial pollution, appeal permits for environmental pollution or destruction of wetlands, challenge agency regulations that fall short of legislative mandates, and prod agencies to perform statutory duties. Louisiana state courts, and most federal courts in Louisiana, have adopted "student practice" rules that allow TELC students to appear and argue in court.

The American Bar Association honored TELC as co-recipient of its first "Award for Distinguished Achievement in Environmental Law and Policy" in 2000. In 2010, the New Orleans chapter of the Federal Bar Association honored TELC with its “Camille F. Gravel Jr. Pro Bono Award.”
