LaDonna is a passionate, outspoken and energetic advocate for environmental racism, health and injustice. She knows the fight is as important as it is difficult. But for LaDonna, this work chose her in the most personal way possible. She had lived in a beautiful neighborhood for over 10 years with her two children. The neighborhood was called Midway Village and it was made up of low income townhomes. Her parents have Black and Native American roots and had always told her that getting her hands in the soil was important- the soil would save her. They were the ones who first dug into the earth and planted a small garden. They found some interesting creatures there; giant worms full of black liquid and two headed frogs but didn’t dwell on it.
