As part of its Earth Day celebration, Unitarian Church North is hosting a free public screening of the powerful documentary film Living Downstream on Friday, April 20th at 7:00 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Green Committee of the church, located at 13800 N. Port Washington Road, Mequon. All are welcome to attend.
Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., Living Downstream follows Steingraber’s travels across North America to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. The film focuses on two pervasive chemicals: atrazine, one of the most widely used herbicides, and the industrial compounds polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). These chemicals have committed “toxic trespass” against many people and are often present in human breast milk. Living Downstream is a powerful reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the health of our air, land, and water. A discussion follows the film.
Respect for the environment, the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part, is one of the principles of the Unitarian Universalist faith. The congregation is in the process of earning the Green Sanctuary designation from the Unitarian Universalist Association. For more information, call the church office at 262-375-3890 or visit www.ucnorth.org.
