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

This week, join us for a conversation with Rebecca Jim, Founder and Executive Director of Local Environmental Action Demanded, Inc,  to learn more about her work leading her Native American community’s fight for environmental justice and remediation of the Tar Creek area, one of the largest and most polluted Superfund sites in the United States.

Rebecca Jim is the Executive Director of L.E.A.D. Agency and one of its founding members. She also serves as the Tar Creekkeeper with the Waterkeeper Alliance. Since 1997, Rebecca has taken action to educate her community about environmental concerns in Northeast Oklahoma and counter environmental hazards that put Northeast Oklahoma's residents at risk both physically and financially. Rebecca has given her all to being Tar Creekkeepr, and was recognized for her hard work by the Waterkeeper Alliance at their annual conference in 2018. Join us to learn more about how Rebecca continues to fight for her community, particularly pushing for EPA clean-up of the Tar Creek Superfund Site through a waste-water-treatment plant.

Living Room Leadership is a bi-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 Rebecca and the CHEJ team, 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, October 7th at 12 EST! Sign up today!
