      EVENT DETAILS
      FREE SCREENING + DISCUSSION: THE DEVIL WE KNOW

      From cosmetics to ski wax, frying pans to waterproof jackets, take-out foodware to stain-resistant fabrics, Teflon-like chemicals are found in hundreds of consumer products -- and now in nearly every American.  Stephanie Soechtig's documentaryTHE DEVIL WE KNOW chronicles a group of citizens in West Virginia as they take on a powerful corporation following the discovery that it knowingly dumped PFAS, a class of toxic chemicals into the drinking water supply. These substances, developed to make non-stick coatings, spread from this stream to waterways throughout the planet and into the bloodstreams of fish, wildlife, and humans. How toxic are PFAS and can be done about them? A panel discussion after the screening will aquaint you with environmental advocates working on this issue. They will share political actions you can participate in to impact the problem, and show you ways you can protect yourself, your family and your community from these toxins. The event is a collaboration of Climate Action Rhode Island, Clean Water Action, The Savvy Women's Alliance, Toxics Action Center, Conservation Law Foundation and The Whale Guitar Project.
