  • Diane Wilson is an eco-warrior in action. A fourth-generation shrimper, Wilson began fishing the bays off the Gulf Coast of Texas at the age of eight. By 24, she was a boat captain. In 1989, while running her brother's fish house at the docks and mending nets, she read a newspaper article that listed her home of Calhoun County as the number one toxic polluter in the country. She set up a meeting in the town hall to discuss what the chemical plants were doing to the bays and thus began her life as an environmental activist. Threatened by thugs and despised by her neighbors, Wilson insisted the truth be told and that Formosa Plastics stop dumping toxins into the bay.

The Texas Jail Project stands in solidarity with the co-founder of our organization, Diane Wilson. On Thursday, November 29th, Diane locked her neck to an industry truck at a pumping station in front of the Valero refinery in the Houston neighborhood of Manchester in order to call attention to the effects that the Keystone XL Pipeline, and ultimately tar sands, will have upon communities along the Houston Shipping Channel, who are already being disproportionately exploited by the industry.
