Living Downstream: Film & Discussion
Monday, October 27 @ 7 pm
In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we present this award-winning documentary, which follows cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber to some of the most beautiful places in North America to bring attention to toxic chemicals in our environment. Learn how they migrate, and how they enter our bodies and once inside, may contribute to cancer formation. Maria Lyzen, President of the Michigan Breast Cancer Coalition, leads a follow-up discussion. Visit the Living Downstream website.
