CIDA collects scientific data about the sources, types and amounts of pollution emitted by polluting neighbors and educates residents of Port Arthur (who are overwhelmingly low-income individuals and people of color) about the toxic burden they shoulder. Mr. Kelley is also a member of the Screen Actors guild he has worked in the movie and stage industry for 15 years and he has also served on the National Environmental Justice advisory Council to EPA 2009 – 2011.
