Description

Join us for a film screening and discussion of RiverBlue. Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, “RiverBlue” spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by actor and clean water advocate Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, the effects on humanity, and the solutions inspiring hope for a sustainable future. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic clothing items has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

After the film, there will be a Q&A moderated by Wendy Walker Williams, Executive Director, Community Partnerships, University of Chicago, Office of Civic Engagement.

Teens and young adults encouraged to attend.

Tickets are free, with $8 suggested donation.
