Join us for our sixth edition of Living Room Leadership: sharing stories of community activists and leaders, from our homes to yours.

This week we will be speaking with Hilton Kelley of CIDA Inc., Community In-Power and Development Association.

Hilton Kelley founded CIDA Inc. and began to challenge the environmental violations of the plants that loom over the community he calls home. CIDA collects scientific data from the emission sources and educates residents of Port Arthur about the toxic burden they shoulder.

While fighting locally, Mr. Kelley also arranged for CIDA to join the international Shell Global Accountability Campaign and spoke at three Shell Annual Meetings in London and The Hague, The Netherlands.

In 2002 Mr. Kelley testified before the US. Senate on behalf of impoverished communities across the nation. Mr. Kelley is the 2011 Goldman Environmental Prize winner received Presidential recognition for his achievements.

Living Room Leadership is a weekly event on Wednesdays at noon EST. Tune in during your lunch, morning coffee break, or breakfast.

Listen, Learn, & Ask Questions! Hear stories, meet leaders and role models.

The event will last about 45 minutes. It will begin with a conversation between the CHEJ team and Hilton, and will conclude with an opportunity for everyone to ask questions. We ask that everyone on the video call submits questions through the chat, and we will try our best to answer everyone.

We're excited to see you all Wednesday, August 12 at 12 EST! Sign up today!
