Session II: Making Change and Moving Mountains: When Mothers Discover Their Children’s Health is at Risk
This session provides a snapshot of the experiences of three women and the actions they took when they discovered their children and families were sickened by exposures; contaminated drinking water, polluted air, and land that was an unknown dumping ground for toxic waste.
