Showing of the Love Canal Documentary film.
In 1980, three frustrated mothers made American history by taking federal officials hostage in the community built on the site of New York's toxic Love Canal. In this riveting expose, the three activists-Lois Gibbs, Barbara Quimby, and Patti Grenzy-and research scientist Dr. Beverly Paigen, who staunchly stood by the residents, discuss their volatile four-year political battle to have the entire community evacuated. Archival footage of President Jimmy Carter, Jane Fonda, government officials, and residents who were on the scene convey the urgency of America's first headline eco-disaster.
