Follow the stories of five rural communities and the devastating public health impact of factory farming at a free showing of Right To Harm.

The documentary will be shown from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 16 at the Screenland Armour, 408 Armour Road, North Kansas City, MO.

Filmed across the country, the documentary chronicles the failures of state agencies to regulate industrial animal agriculture. Known as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFOs, these facilities produce millions of gallons of untreated waste that destroys the quality of life for nearby neighbors.  Fed up with the lack of regulation, the disenfranchised citizens portrayed in the film band together to demand justice from their legislators. See the movie trailer at Right to Harm.

There will be a panel discussion following the film with Brian Smith, Missouri Rural Crisis Center; Katherine Kelly , Cultivate Kansas City; Rev. Rodney Williams, Missouri Poor People’s Campaign; and members of the Sierra Club and Lone Jack Neighbors.

Get free tickets at Eventbrite. For more information, contact Brian Smith at brian@morural.org.
