Nalleli Cobo has been fighting toxic oil wells in her South LA community since she was 9 years old.

The infamous AllenCo oil drilling site located just two blocks from her school. These drilling sites are mostly located in low-income, Hispanic neighborhoods who are paying the true cost of air pollution.

In 2010, Nalleli had constant nosebleeds and headaches, developed asthma and was hospitalized for heart palpitations. She’s been working with her community to fight Big Oil and establish a 2,500-foot health and safety buffer in Los Angeles.
