Program Description

Description

Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary The Devil We Know, which will be followed by a short presentation and Q & A with CT PFAS expert Anne Hulick of Clean Water Action.

The Devil We Know shows how citizens in West Virginia take on a powerful corporation after they discover it has knowingly been dumping a toxic chemical -- now found in the blood of 99.7 percent of Americans -- into the local drinking water supply. 

The State of CT is currently considering policy for protecting our drinking water from this class of chemicals, known as PFAS, and lawmakers need to hear from us about the issue. Join us to learn about the risks these chemicals pose, how other states are protecting drinking water, and the presence of this chemical in CT’s waterways.

This screening is co-sponsored by the Ridgefield Library, Norwalk River Watershed Association, Woodcock Nature Center, Clean Water Action, RACE, and Ridgefield Conservation Commission.
