Goldman Environmental Prize recipient Rosa Hilda Ramos is an original founder of Communities United Against Contamination (CUCCo) and a movement leader against toxic pollution and environmental degradation in Cataño, Puerto Rico. Through persistent appeals to the state and federal government, Ramos and CUCCo successfully pressured the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority to curb its emissions and drove the local acquisition and state protection of the Las Cucharillas Marsh, which supports immense ecological diversity and offers flood protection for nearby Cataño communities.
