Grab your popcorn and find a cozy spot at home tonight, October 1, as Topanga Peace Alliance hosts another Virtual First Friday Film Night featuring the new documentary, “9/11’s Unsettled Dust.” The film examines how federal and city officials lied about air contamination in New York City following the destruction of the twin towers and failed to protect public health. It is the story of the deadly illnesses that resulted from this deception, and of the epic battle fought by 9/11 responders and survivors to pass the James Zadroga Health and Compensation Act. The film includes amazing footage of how some politicians in congress fought against providing health care to first responders until they were overwhelmingly shamed into doing so. This is a documentary that gives just one example of how the greed of the wealthy translates into environmental laws, regulations, and policies that literally kill thousands and thousands of people each year. We will open the Zoom event at around 7:15 p.m. Before the film, we will have announcements regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice, and talk about follow-up actions to our special September program on systemic racism. Video will be enabled so guests can optionally see each other if they choose to enable their cameras. After the film we will open a discussion about how wealth and greed are defining our country’s politics and what we can do about it. Meeting ID: 829 4054 7115, Passcode: Peace2021
