WDSU: St. James woman credits faith and community in fight against big industry in Cancer Alley

A St. James woman has become a local David and Goliath story as she works tirelessly to save her community from an expansion by the chemical industry.

“The chemical plants have more money than we have so their money talks,” Sharon Lavigne said. “We are just a little old community of people. We don’t have any money to fight this $9.4 billion dollar industry.”
