Karla Land is the director of Concerned Citizens Against Pollution and a resident of Channelview, Texas. She and her neighbors formed the organization a decade ago, to fight an incinerator that would increase air pollution in her community. Before her lungs were weakened by the air pollution from refining, chemical, and other industry in Channelview, she was a deep-sea diver and scuba instructor. She now runs a motorcycle repair shop with her husband.
