Marshall University's Sustainability Department and Office of International and Intercultural Affairs present a lunchtime matinee for environmental justice: "Mossville: When Great Trees Fall." This free public screening is open to the campus and local community and will be at noon Monday, April 8, in East Hall's Center for African American Students.

Sandwiches and snacks will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

This film shares the story of Mossville, Louisiana, a once-thriving community founded by people of color that became a breeding ground for toxic petrochemical plants that have forced residents from their homes and left the others exposed to contamination and pollution. The film introduces one man who has refused to abandon his family’s land and has fought for environmental justice and equity.
