Catherine Flowers

Growing up an Alabama country girl, Catherine Flowers was part of the environmental movement before she even knew what it was. She made a name for herself by shining a spotlight on lack of sewage infrastructure for poor residents in Lowndes County, Alabama, earning the nickname of the “Erin Brockovich of Sewage.” Today, she advocates for sanitation and environmental issue through the organization she founded, the Alabama Center for Rural Community Development Corporation, bringing civil rights to the realm of environmental justice. Flowers is also the subject of the film The Accidental Environmentalist: Catherine Flowers (Mountainfilm 2019).
