This is not only an EJ and public health concern but a human rights issue as well!

I had no idea that this situation had ever happened, so I’m thankful to the EJ in Action Blog for continuing to share the stories that others in the government seem to ignore.

Jeannie what can others do to assist you in addressing the challenges that your community is facing?

She has always been the greatest advocate for this community, ensuring that their voices are heard. Sorry to hear about the losses of those wonderful women but glad that Jeannie has been there for them all these years. This is a very touching story for me. Cynthia

The quilts of Lake Apopka is a first step that will enable the media coverage of the event, followed probably by health coverage and a lawsuit so that farmers have a compensation.
