Bill Holland, Midwest Regional Field Director, Apollo Alliance

Bill Holland is Midwest Field Director for the Apollo Alliance, an effort to end America's dependence on foreign oil and create millions of high wage jobs. Prior to this, Bill led the Iowa Fair Trade Campaign, gaining commitments from John Kerry and all other Democratic candidates for President to oppose the Free Trade Area of the Americas and support trade agreements with strong, enforceable standards for workers and the environment. Before this, Bill was the Grassroots Organizer with ForestEthics, where he helped gain a landmark commitment from Staples, Inc. to protect endangered forests and dramatically increase their sale of recycled paper. Bill was also Lead Organizer for Green Corps, the Field School for Environmental Organizing. Bill graduated from Grinnell College.
