Film Screening: The Devil We Know

February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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 documentary The 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.

Join us for a panel discussion following the film screening. This event is hosted by Lt. Governor David Zuckerman.
