E7: Sister Dorothy Mae Stang Pt. 1: “Angel of the Amazon”

Known as the “Angel of the Amazon” she dedicated her life to protecting the poor in the 1970s to early 2000s.

Dorothy Mae Stang was a fierce opponent to these unethical practices, and worked tirelessly to protect small-scale farmers during a time of upheaval in Brazil.
