Time: 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
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 p.m. on Tuesday, October 15 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, Flory Meeting Hall, 2120 Harper St., Lawrence, KS.
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.
The screening is sponsored by Lawrence Ecology Teams United In Sustainability, Water Advocacy Team, Kansas Chapter Sierra Club, Sustainability Action Network, Kansas Rural Center and Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. See a movie trailer at Right to Harm.
