American Experience ‘Poisoned Ground: The Tragedy at Love Canal’

Monday, April 22 at 8 p.m.

In the late 1970s, residents of Love Canal in Niagara Falls, NY, discovered their neighborhood had been built on a former chemical waste dump. Housewives activated to create a grassroots movement that galvanized the landmark Superfund Bill.

Earth Day is celebrated every April 22 to bring attention to the necessity for environmental protections for both nature and humankind. Visit our website here for ways you can get involved!
