Berta Cáceres was a Honduran environmental activist who fought for the prevention of unsustainable development in indigenous communities. Cáceres managed to stop the construction of the Agua Zarca Dam, a project that was going to destroy the resources of the indigenous people living there. The dam would have cut off water, food, and medicine for the people living in the area. Through her efforts, she won the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015. This message was brought to you by Victoria Huang of the ERASE Club. Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with us.
