USA, Chicago, August 25, 2009. Carolina Macias, 16, has spent most of her free time volunteering for LVEJO, and wants to be a doctor specializing in public health. The Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, headquartered in a predominantly Mexican-American neighborhood of Chicago, campaigns not only against pollution but for clean power, park facilities, urban agriculture, and restoring public transit. LVEJO's staff and volunteers make significant outreach and education efforts, especially for youth. Photo for an HOY feature story by Jay Dunn.
