A very personal impact on my life was seeing the place on a Landfill. I am reffering to Altgeld Gardens. This place made me realize what conditions people live in. I wouldn't imagine how living on a landfill can be. I complain about Little Village being bad, but this place made me thankful that I have a little corner store where I can buy me an apple. These people have no grocery stores and they have tons of open space, but its contaminated. There has been community workers and organizers just like LVEJO and it's great, but there is certainly more to be cleaned and be fixed. The place is still contaminated just not at high levels. There are many empty homes because they need to be renovated and they are built on contaminated land. I was so shocked to see the conditions of the place and it makes me mad that these are people of low income just like Little Village, but these are issues purposely put on us because we are poor. It's not right for people who have less money to deal with problems that cost millions to get fixed. The problem just keeps getting worse and we as communities need to fight for our rights.
