A Better Future for Louisiana
Preventing climate change is critical to protecting our communities from dangerous hurricanes and other natural disasters. That’s why General Honoré founded the GreenARMY – an alliance of civic, community, and environmental groups and concerned residents from across Louisiana dedicated to winning meaningful change.
5 Point Plan to Win the War on Pollution
- Protect drinking water from lead contamination
- Clean up abandoned oil wells
- No more fenceline petrochemical plants
- End poisonous plastics plants
- Stop toxic styrofoam production
Answering the Call
General Honoré founded the GreenARMY in 2012, after a devastating 30-acre sinkhole forced hundreds of residents from Bayou Corne, Louisiana from their homes. When the government and corporations failed to respond, residents called General Honoré for help. Seeing the devastating impact of air and water pollution on families in his home state led him to take on a new mission: fighting the climate crisis.
General Honoré and the GreenARMY are leading the fight to protect our air, water, coastlines, and communities from environmental disasters.
