Never one to shrink from undertaking , upon completion of law school, Holloway went on to work on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for Congresswoman Carrie Meek and also served as a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Fellow. L.J. returned returned to EPA as a political appointee and formed an ad hoc UnIon organization called NO FEAR, which established the No-FEAR Act in the 107th Congress signed by president Bush to protect whistleblowers.
