Rosina Philippe is a lifetime resident of coastal Louisiana, and an advocate for preservation of traditional cultural and heritage practices. A grassroots activist, she has partnered with leaders from other communities along with faith-based and non-profit organizations to work for sustainability of marginalized traditional family fishers.
Rosina has traveled to both the East and West coast to study and build network partnerships to address issues of Fair Trade Marketing, Racial Injustice, Economic Instability, and Coastal Restoration. She is vocal on the issue of recognizing accountability, and identifying contributing factors and entities in relation to these issues. A firm believer that people, facing similar problems, through informed education and information sharing have the power to affect positive long-term changes, and retake charge of their own destinies.
