Climate Changemakers – Nicole Nelson and Valerie Marion

Nicole Nelson and Valerie Marion are two of the leading voices in the fight to save the lives and communities of Centreville, Illinois, a community that has been living in raw sewage for decades. Nicole Nelson is an attorney with Equity Legal Services, where she litigates on behalf of and works with Centreville residents, and Valerie Marion is a lifelong Centreville resident who is one of the founders of Centreville Citizens for Change, a community group that provides bottled water and other resources to their neighbors. The duo talks about how their town was structurally neglected, the physical and emotional toll of the struggle for justice, and what you can do to support.
