New Orleans Group/LWV-New Orleans screening of "Tar Creek"

Sierra Club/New Orleans Group (in co-sponsorship with the The League of Women Voters-New Orleans) is screening the environmental film "Tar Creek" on Thursday, Sept. 23rd, from 7-9pm, at the Audubon Zoo's Dominion Education Center. We request a donation of $2-$3 per person to defray costs.
Everyone is welcome to come.

This environmental documentary examines the Tar Creek Superfund Site, a stretch of Oklahoma heartland that has long been profoundly damaged by zinc and lead mining. The piece looks back as far as 100 years into Tar Creek's history (when the U.S. government removed natives from the land), and traces the many offenses that have been committed against the area and its people over the past century.
