This past Tuesday former farmworker and community advocate, Linda Lee visited Rollins College as an honored guest for a presentation by senior environmental studies student, Gabbie Buendia. Gabbie is studying both Environmental Studies and Women's Studies. She presented the findings of her senior thesis project, which focused on the 'Impact of Mothers on the American Environmental Justice Movement.' By looking both at historical examples and current case studies, the thesis project highlighted how vital the skills and experiences of motherhood are to recognizing environmental inequality and fighting for better conditions. Linda was one of five women interviewed for the project and the stories she shared about herself, her fellow farmworkers, and the Lake Apopka Memorial Quilt are the central focus of one of the chapters. Gabbie feels honored to be able to include Ms. Lee's story and work in the project. She also wanted to emphasize how important it is that stories of environmental injustice be passed along through generations, just as Linda has promoted through the Memorial Quilt.
