In the Greys Ferry neighborhood of South Philadelphia, which sits in the shadow of a 150-year-old oil Philadelphia Energy Solutions oil refinery so large it nearly eclipses the acreage of Central Park and Arlington National Cemetery, Kilynn Johnson grew from a quiet 8-year-old with asthma to an outspoken cancer survivor leading community efforts to halt continued fossil fuel operations and the deadly impact of their pollution on her neighborhood.
