Free online event: Maria Lopez-Nuñez, a Honduran American is waging a war for environmental justice against one of the most toxic neighborhoods in the country.
As part of our Black, Bold & Brilliant series, Utah Film Center, in partnership with KRCL is excited to announce our upcoming film screening and post-discussion of The Sacrifice Zone. Join us for this virtual screening available online from April 7th through May 7th and watch this compelling story of the one-mile stretch in Newark, New Jersey known as Chemical Corridor – Doremus Avenue.
This toxic stretch of land borders the Ironbound neighborhood, where Portuguese, Brazilian, Central American, and African American residents are separated from toxic substances by no more than a railroad. The Sacrifice Zone follows Maria as she leads a group of environmental justice fighters determined to break the cycle of poor communities of color serving as dumping grounds for our consumer society with one of the most effective environmental organizations in the country.
