This afternoon at the Little Art

Green Environmental Coalition Screens Compelling Documentary

The Green Environmental Coalition (GEC), Ohio Environmental Council (OEC), and the Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ) will present the compelling documentary Living Downstream on October 23 at 4:00 p.m. at the Little Art Theatre. Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, PhD, Living Downstream is a cinematic feature-length documentary. This poetic 85-minute film follows Sandra during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. Through Sandra’s personal journey and her scientific exploration, Living Downstream is a powerful reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the health of our air, land, and water.

Additionally, CHEJ will present information on diseases- breast cancer, prostate cancer, learning disabilities, diabetes- that have been linked to toxic chemicals in everyday products and in our environment. A new law has been proposed to require the chemical industry to prove their chemicals are safe. Learn more about the Toxic Substance Control Act and efforts to promote critical reforms of U.S. chemical laws.
