The Women of Cancer Alley, is a first-ever collection of films made by women who live adjacent to chemical plants, tank farms and refineries along the Mississippi River in south Louisiana.
Seven 2-minute films depict the lives, concerns and activism of eight women working to stop build out of plastics plants, including a proposed Formosa complex of 14 facilities that will produce single use plastics and an estimated 26 million tons of greenhouse gases in the already-burdened St. James Parish. Nearby St. John Parish has the highest cancer risk in the nation due to unregulated emissions from Denka’s neoprene plant. Come talk with two of the grassroots leaders mobilizing to keep families from the harm of additional toxic emissions, while protecting the global climate from more greenhouse gases.
The program will feature the film shorts and a discussion. Join Anne Rolfes Director of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade and Sharon Lavigne Founder & Director of RISE St. James in conversation.
