About This Episode
When Marisol Becerra was a little girl, she thought that the huge smokestacks in her community, Chicago’s “Little Village,” were a “Cloud Factory.” Years later, as she watched her younger sister Brenda suffer from Asthma, she realized that the Cloud Factory is a coal burning power plant. With none of the jobs at the Crawford Power Plant for local residents and any of the power it generates for Chicago, Marisol and a few friends began to organize and fight this environmental injustice. They mobilized youth to educate the people of Little Village to take action and demand change to close the Cloud Factory once and for all.
