The Educational Video Center and Sidley invite you to a private screening of Breathing Easy: Environmental Hazards in Public Housing, a 2012 documentary that explores the harmful impact of hazardous environmental conditions on the health and well-being of communities living in low-income housing. Featured in the exhibition “Health is a Human Right: Race and Place in America” at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum in Atlanta, Georgia, this film offers a compelling argument for understanding how environmental justice is intertwined with struggles for social, racial, and housing justice. A discussion with the film’s youth producer and narrator Raelene Holmes-Andrews and Sidley lawyers Nicole Noëlliste, Simone Jones, and Doreen Rachal will follow the screening.
