Documentary and Social Action Night: The Smell of Money

April 14 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

“The smell of money” — that’s what Big Pork calls the stench of pig waste in the air in eastern North Carolina, where much of the world’s bacon and barbecue is made. But to Elsie Herring and others who live near the state’s giant pig factories, the revolting odor is a call to battle against generations of injustice.”

The award-winning 2022 movie The Smell of Money covers the harms suffered by local communities living alongside corporate hog farms. It delves into their legal fight for clean air, clean water, and a life free from the stench of manure.

After the screening, you’ll be able to connect with Wholesome Minnesota, the NAACP, Compassionate Action for Animals, Climate Reality, the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, and more – local organizations and chapters working on addressing environmental injustice, animal abuse, corporate power, structural racism, and more. Each organization will table to present information about their ongoing work. There will also be information on accessible steps to get involved.

-Doors open at 3:00 pm to start connecting with community organizations.
-The screening will run from 3:30-5:00 pm.
-You can continue connecting with the community organizations until 6 pm.
-This event is free.
-There will be light refreshments.
