Right To Harm – Wednesday, August 28th at 7:00pm in partnership with Green Country Sierra Club. Join us for an exciting and informative film event including the feature film “Right To Harm” and a new short film, “BIG CHICKEN,” created by our local filmmakers Scott Swearingen and Steve Herren.
A panel of experts in the fields of poultry farms in Delaware County, local geology, watersheds in NE Oklahoma and local problems with these mega poultry farms will follow the film with opportunities for questions and discussions.
About the film: Through the riveting stories of five American communities, ‘Right to Harm’ exposes the devastating public health impact that factory farming has on many of our country’s most disadvantaged citizens. 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 citizens turned activists band together from across the country to demand justice.
