Homeless woman lobby's for EPA-EJ Agency to include Homelessness

Into their agency and secures nation wide

EJ Homelessness Small Grant opportunity

Kelly Miller, is an eastern Kentucky coal mountain woman fighting for her justice in the nation's capital thru a series of local and federal litigation civil actions with criminal actions beginning prosecution in the very near future. In August 2011 Kelly was devastated to find out she was a victim of sex trafficking discovering illegal cameras had been placed throughout her home without her knowledge or permission videoing her every move and streaming the footage to an illegal under ground voyeurism web site for no less than the previous 8 years.

Kelly immediately began fighting for her justice against those who were responsible for the criminal acts targeted against her however, many of the guilty in the criminal acts were wealthy men and women who used their influence to block Kelly's path to Justice and STILL Kelly persevered as a pro se litigate to receive a guilty verdict in Jackson, Kentucky in 2013 in a criminal court with judge Franklin Fletcher stating "The Commonwealth of Kentucky has Committed CRIMES against You."

Despite receiving the guilty verdict the powers that be continued to deny Kelly her complete and true Justice and withheld sending the guilty to federal prison attempting to force Kelly to settle for monetary justice yet Kelly refused to sell her integrity so Kelly came to DC to fight in federal court and secure her justice through their incarceration with the aid of the DOJ and FBI once and for all.

Kelly immediately reported the criminal acts committed against her upon her arrival here in the nation's capital and in the beginning the FBI worked with Kelly however the tide changed and suddenly Kelly found the FBI working completely against her as one of their own Thomas Flosnik had used their resources to actively participate in the sex trafficking. Despite the FBI using their resources to block Kelly from receiving her justice and living her life Kelly battled on until Kelly was acknowledged for her authenticity and validated nationally for exposing FBI, law enforcement and government colluding to commit targeted RICO acts against her in a sadistic, inhumane illegal Masonic Blackball.

Validating Kelly's success Kelly was honored July 30 th , 2018 by the National Whistleblowers Organization https://www.whistleblowers.org/members/kelly-miller/ who hosts a National Whistleblower Day event each year recognizing Whistleblowers from all arenas and honoring them for their fearlessness and integrity of refusing to be silenced no matter the cost to them personally. The 2018 Whistleblowers event recognizing and honoring Whistleblowers was held at the Dirksen's Senate building on Capitol Hill on July 30 th . Kelly was introduced as "Kelly Miller, FBI Whistleblower of law enforcement and government corruption."

As a direct result of Kelly's fight for justice Kelly has been homeless for almost eight years since March 2012 and while fighting the courts to secure her justice and experiencing homelessness adversity herself Kelly took on even another battle major battle to advocate for the homeless.

Despite currently being homeless herself and living on the streets of the nation's capital for the last three years, as a direct result of pursuing her personal justice from targeted crimes committed against her, through Kelly's constant and vocal lobbying and advocacy she has been nominated consecutively for three years by national organizations as a viable candidate for the EPA/ Environmental Justice NEJAC seat. (National Environmental Justice Advisory Committee)

Since brining her personal search for justice to the nation's capital and successfully exposing a targeted Blackball made up of law enforcement and government individuals which began in Kelly's home state of Kentucky following her to the nation's capital Kelly has been busy advocating for her justice as well as speaking out for others Basic Human Rights. Kelly provided personal testimony before the Inter American Commission for Human Rights in April 2016 https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=video+of+iachr+hearing+on+access+to+water+april+4+2016&view=detail&mid=2427E2F70B84B16A27182427E2F70B84B16A2718&FORM=VIRE and several various national and governmental events before United Nations Special Rapporteurs, government representatives including the general public to bring enlightenment and awareness educating and enlightening others on the Reality of Homelessness and Violations of Basic Human Rights.

In the Fall of 2016 Kelly was contacted by a EPA EJ / NEJAC chair member who had meet Kelly at a separate USHRN conference and who ask Kelly if sponsorship was provided would she be willing to attend the EPA EJ 2016 National Training and Resources Summit "Revitalizing Vulnerable Communities" held in Arlington, Virginia October 25 th -26 th . Kelly of course agreed to go as an observer to network and partner with other advocates.

The 1 st day of the summit was extremely disappointing as Kelly said she found NO mention of Homelessness was included in the agenda or the daily conservations regarding "Revitalizing Vulnerable Communities". Instead the conservations centered around hurricanes, floods and other "Natural Disasters" referring to the victims of these unfortunate events as being "Vulnerable Communities". However disappointed from the lack of attention to the homeless community Kelly remained optimistic for a inclusion of representation at the second day's event.

Kelly returned that night to her cold damp place on the street under the sparse shelter the overhang of the Metro entrance provided where she normally slept and as Kelly approached her nightly sleeping area she looked among those fellow unhoused individuals sleeping around her and she saw the various demographics represented, black, white, brown, yellow both female and male with various ranges of ages and Kelly said to herself now "THIS" IS a Vulnerable Community.

The 2 nd day of the summit again remained absent of ANY mention of Homelessness being a Vulnerable community. Kelly herself with personal experience knew firsthand the unsheltered homeless are exposed to the vast dangerous elements of climate issues on a twenty-four hour bases and they are the considered to be the "Canary in the Mine" when it comes to Environmental Justice issues. If there is an Environmental Justice issue being faced the Unhoused /Homeless are there at the forefront experiencing it full force without relief.

At this point Kelly was more than disappointed the MOST Vulnerable experiencing Environmental Injustice on a daily basis would be completely left out of such an important topic and event. As the Summit ended Kelly went back to her dirty cold place on the street to sleep and the next morning still highly motivated from the previous two days lack of inclusion of the most vital Unsheltered Homelessness arena Kelly wrote a three page letter to the EPA Environmental Justice Agency enlightening them of their omission of Homelessness in the Summit and offered her personal assistance and lived experience to support the Environmental Justice agency in correcting their oversight in future events. Evidently the EJ office wanted to meet this homeless woman who would be so daring as to comment on their oversight to their obvious exclusion and offer her assistance in correcting for their future events. As a direct result of Kelly's three page letter Kelly was ask to meet with the Environmental Justice agency senior attorney and staff regarding her concerns.

To me I was always taught and I very firmly believe and uphold as a counselor that "SILENCE IS DEADLY".

I have included a couple of my favorite quotes explaining the lasting HARM SILENCE causes.

"Our Lives BEGIN to end the day WE become silent about things that matter." Rev Martin Luther King

"There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that's not going to be very helpful for us in the long run, in terms of solving our problems. And SOMBBODY has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies." Dr. Ben Carson

Kelly's story is heartbreaking. No American deserves to go through this, and I truly admire her strength and courage to continue fighting for justice that is so rightfully hers. I'm so grateful stories like this are being exposed. Well done, OEN!

Thank you Jami for your kind words and support!

You are absolutely right NO ONE deserves to be illegally targeted and violated by any individual or group of people for sport, entertainment and profit just because they have money and power.

Exposure of these vicious crimes by media representatives such as OEN is a window of Justice for victims previously silenced!

I have known Kelly since we were toddlers. I have always found her to be honest, compassionate, intelligent and loyal. She is an all around lovely person. I support her efforts to obtain justice for herself and to fight for the rights of the homeless community. She is a warrior in this fight! I have heard her recounts of abuse of ones that should have protected her. It's time for her to have peace and to see justice!

I've met Kelly, and can attest to a number of things: 1.) How difficult her life is/has been living on the mean streets of Washington D.C. 2.) Her dedication to helping other homeless people and whistleblowers. 3.) Her incredible perseverance and intelligence in bringing to justice those who harmed her and others. If we had more people with Kelly's guts and determination, the world would be a safer and happier place. If you are inspired to help her causes, please do not hesitate to take action!
