Myrna Pagan

Myrna Pagan, leader of  "Vidas Viequenses Valen", is a health and social justice advocate -and cancer survivor- from Vieques, Puerto Rico. She and many others believe that the high rate of cancer in Vieques is due to the decades of weapons testing that the US military undertook on the small island. While Vieques successfully evicted the Navy in 2005, they still struggle today to get the US government to clean up the toxic waste from for more than 60 years of bombing.

Myrna at the United Nations this June, 2016
