Green 13 presents a Free Film Screening  Monday, May 9  6:30 pm

Free Film Screening and discussion of TOXIC TRESPASS with special guest Dorothy Goldin Rosenberg, Executive Producer
In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads to Windsor and Sarnia - Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases....She meets passionate activists...doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up when anyone tries to even ask questions about the connection between toxins and serious health problems

Monday, May 9 - 6:30 pm Annette Branch Library   145 Annette St.
