Deadly toxic ash: The #AES Corporation in #PuertoRico and the inaction of the EPA/Government

What do you do when ten or twelve people on your street alone develop cancer, or when your kids are playing in the backyard but you don't know if the ash that's covered everything will give them cancer or respiratory disease. What do you do when the water you drink could contain heavy metals that seeped into it because your government has allowed a coal company to dump it's waste in your community without any accountability to human health risks...

La Borinqueña is a Superhero that has inspired and raised close to a quarter of a million dollars for grassroots organizations on the islands. Yet her impact reaches far beyond this fact. Because children in our community can see themselves in a way they haven’t ever seen themselves before. What I learned...
