One Earth Film Festival: "Toxic Chemicals: Kids in Danger"
Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Is our dependence on pesticides harming the health of our children? Every day, children are exposed to up to 130 chemical pollutants from pesticides. All around the world, scientists and doctors are raising the alarm, linking increases in child cancers, birth defects and even the explosion of autism with exposure to chemicals in pesticides.
Please join us for a post-film Q&A with Illinois State Senator Don Harmon and Dr. Warren Porter, Zoology and Environmental Toxicology professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Now in its sixth year, One Earth Film Festival is the Midwest's premier environmental film festival, creating opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability, and the power of human involvement. A production of Green Community Connections, the festival screens films in locations around Chicagoland and runs March 3-12.
