Please join the Community Engagement, Environmental Justice and Health lab, the student group 17 for Peace and Justice and the School of Public Health for the Maryland premiere of the new documentary Right to Harm.

Associate Professor Sacoby Wilson, a leading environmental health scientist and environmental justice advocate, is among those interviewed in the film about the devastating public health impact factory farming has on many disadvantaged communities throughout the United States. Filmed in five rural communities across the country, the RIGHT TO HARM documentary chronicles the failures of state agencies to regulate industrial animal agriculture. Known formally 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, these disenfranchised citizens band together to demand justice from their legislators.

The film screening is free, but an online ticket will be needed for entry. The RSVP/ticketing link will be shared in early fall.
