Upcoming RIGHT TO HARM Screenings in Iowa

Right to Harm is a national exposé of the public health, environment, and quality of life impacts of factory farms that documents the ongoing battle that rural communities are experiencing in Iowa, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, and Delmarva. It also exposes the failure of state agencies to adequately regulate CAFOs and protect communities. Right to Harm focuses on the “human welfare” impacts of CAFOs. There are no scenes of animal abuse in the film. Watch the trailer below.

Iowa currently has over 22 million hogs in approximately 13,000 factory farms. Each of those industrial operations were built in neighborhoods of rural residents with few protections for neighbors and little ability for them to have a meaningful say in their location. Right to Harm exposes the devastating ramifications that many families in Iowa and across the United States may experience from these inadequately regulated livestock factories.
