T-g-1 Wiener Auditorium



​​The Ash Center invites you to a dinner screening and discussion of the environmental racism documentary "There's Something in the Water," co-directed and produced by Ian Daniel MC MPA 23. The film explores the topic of environmental racism and shines a light on the Canadian government’s current and historical decisions to prioritize the profits of large corporations over the health of Indigenous and Black Nova Scotian communities. The screening will be followed by a post-film conversation with Louise Delisle,  Dorene Bernard, and Michelle Francis Denny, three activists featured in the film, and Yanilda Gonzalez, assistant professor of public policy at HKS. This event is part of the “What Justice Looks Like” discussion series convened by Professor Gonzalez. “What Justice Looks Like” takes a perspective of “public policy from below” by centering the voices of those on the ground level of struggles for justice, but traditionally excluded from the halls of power.
