Film Screening of “After the Spill” this Wednesday, 10/10, @RooseveltU

Join the Sustainability Studies Program & the RU Green student organization for a screening of the film After the Spill on Wednesday, October 10th, 4:30-6:30 p.m., in the Sullivan Room (2nd floor of the Auditorium Building) at RU’s Chicago Campus. A discussion will follow the film screening. Open to all members of the Roosevelt community.

October is Campus Sustainability Month and October 8th is Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The 2015 documentary After the Spill documents the aftermath of the largest oil spill in U.S. history: the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

Indigenous groups all over the world are leading the fight against fossil fuel projects such as the Dakota Access pipeline, the Keystone XL pipeline and the Bayou Bridge Pipeline which represent loss of land, water, and safety in their communities.
