Justin Solet

Justin is a tribal member of the United Houma Nation, commercial fisherman, and 10 year veteran of the Gulf oil fields. As an Indigenous person living on the Frontlines, he sees first-hand how the promises oil and gas companies are just empty words used to target, divide, and conquer peoples living in black, brown, indigenous, and impoverished communities. Fighting for all Peoples’ rights to live with healthy food, air, water and a piece of land they can call their home is his biggest priority. His call to action came on April 20, 2010, the day his fishing community was nearly destroyed by the BP disaster. Whether it’s stopping carbon capture and storage (CCS) with Louisiana Against False Solutions, or cooking for friends on a weekend, organizing and educating for a true and just transition is the passion that keeps hope alive for him and his family.
