Community Action Works

Jackie Elliott first worked with Community Action Works as the leader of Citizens Leading for Environmental Action & Responsibility (CLEAR), formed to shut down the polluting Wheelabrator trash incinerator in Claremont, New Hampshire. She became a community activist after learning of the connection between endometriosis (an illness that she has suffered from for more than half a century), dioxin and incineration. Jackie is also active with the Endometriosis Association; she is a member and a charter member of their Environmental Advocates initiative. Jackie lives in Waterboro, Maine.
