Calendar of 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.
