October 22: What Lies Upstream
In partnership with the Sierra Club Wastewater Residuals Team, the McKinley Foundation will host this compelling documentary and panel discussion on Tuesday, October 22, from 6 to 9 PM.
Synopsis: In this classic detective story, investigative filmmaker Cullen Hoback travels to West Virginia to uncover the truth behind a massive chemical spill that left 300,000 people without drinking water for months. But when Hoback discovers an obscene collusion between chemical corporations and the highest levels of government, the investigation spirals in a terrifying direction, and we learn the frightening truth about what lies upstream of us all.
Come for free pizza and locally grown organic popcorn! Hear stories from friends who were in WV during the disaster and our local serious water threats, and how we may deal with such a chemical or coal ash contamination.
Other community partners: Food & Water Watch, Illinois Coalition Against Fracking, Eco-Justice Collaborative, Progressive Democrats of America, Faith in Place, Prairie Rivers Network, Peoples Climate Movement, and Spotlight Air Environmental.
