‘Cowspiracy’ Shown at Gateway

April 17, 2015

CowspiracyIn celebration of Earth Day, Racine Green Congregations, the Eco-Justice Center, and Gateway Technical College will present Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 22. The film will be shown free of charge in the Great Lakes Room of Gateway Technical College, 1001 S. Main Street.

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret follows filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.
