Ramsey Sprague was born in Houma, Louisiana and raised in Arlington, Texas. Ramsey moved to Mobile, Alabama in 2013 after being inspired by the resolve of residents of the historic Africatown community to fight against the interests of polluting developers in forming their Mobile Environmental Justice Action Coalition (MEJAC) organization with the mission to engage and organize with Mobile’s most threatened communities in order to defend the inalienable rights to clean air, water, soil, health, and safety; to promote environmental justice; and to take direct action when government fails to do so, ensuring community self-determination. Ramsey gladly volunteered with MEJAC for a few years before taking on their current role as volunteer Board President for MEJAC as the challenges facing Black, Indigenous, and low-income residents across the Mobile area became more clear. They also serve Mobilian and Alabamian communities as the Chair of the Mobile AL NAACP’s Environmental and Climate Justice Committee and as a Co-Chair of the Moving Forward Network’s Southeast Regional Network.
As a Native-identified environmental community organizer, Ramsey's faith drives their resolve to help develop a more just and safer economy for the benefit of future generations and to honor the wisdom of all traditional caretakers of our lands.
