"Power of One Voice" Film
Starts: Wednesday, Apr 22
Ends: Wednesday, Apr 22 - 9:00 pm
Location: Drucker Auditorium, Newton Free Library
Description: Please join Green Decade Newton for our Wednesday, April 22 at 7pm Earth Day Program - “The Power of One Voice” film & discussion. This new film examines the life of Rachel Carson and the profound impact of her book, Silent Spring. Carson, one of the most influential people of the 20th century, taught that our health depends on the quality of our environment. She alerted us to the damage caused by the unbridled use of pesticides such as DDT, urging caution. She catalyzed the environmental movement, leading to the creation of US EPA and passage of the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act. The film includes Carson’s son, her biographer, and scientists who describe her courage in the face of adversity and the chemical industry campaign to discredit her.

Ellie Goldberg, Founder Healthy-Kids. info, a consulting service that promotes health security and educational equity for students with chronic health conditions, will lead a Q & A after the film. Drucker Auditorium, Newton Free Library.
