What do you do when the company you work for and live near is making you sick? Company Town is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about environmental injustice, corporate accountability and community action in a rural Arkansas town. This chilling story reveals the egregious businesses practices of a company owned by the billionaire Koch brothers, government negligence and deregulation, and a devastating cancer cluster that galvanized a town to fight back. Janet Fiskio, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at Oberlin College, will introduce the film and lead a discussion with Karen B. Mulloy of the Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health.
This event is co-sponsored by the CWRU Social Justice Institute, Master of Public Health Program, Swetland Center for Environment Health, and the Oberlin College and Conservatory Environmental Studies Program.
This event is free and open to the community. Light refreshments will be served.
