Olga Bautista

Olga Bautista is a community organizer, activist, mother of two young girls, and a leader in the Southeast Coalition to Ban Petcoke. Petcoke or Petroleum Coke a byproduct of refining Tar sand at the BP refinery in Whiting, IN is being transported into Chicago and stored openly along Calumet River. Residents have been outraged about the fine and oily powder that is getting into their homes, backyard pools and the lungs of their children. A human rights issue that has galvanized the southeast community to take actions and connect this struggle to the problem of global climate change.
