Unfractured

On Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. in the Hansen Student Center, the IWU Environmental Studies Program and JWP Audubon will present Unfractured, a feature documentary about activist Sandra Steingraber (an alum from IWU) as she leads the fight against hydraulic fracturing in New York state.  The following information was taken from the documentary web site (https://www.unfractured.com/).  “A hopeful documentary about fighting with your whole heart, Unfractured follows introspective biologist and mother Sandra Steingraber as she reinvents herself as an outspoken activist and throws herself into an environmental war that many believe is unwinnable.  Branded a “toxic avenger” by Rolling Stone, Sandra quickly emerges as a leader of New York’s biggest grassroots movement in decades. Determined to win an uncompromising battle with the oil and gas industry, Sandra decides she must fight with her whole heart—devoting all her time, energy, and money to the cause. But as the film opens, her personal life is thrown into crisis when her husband Jeff begins having one stroke after another. She knows her family needs her at home, but Sandra can’t stop—not until she and her allies win a state-wide ban on fracking.  Co-sponsored by the IWU Environmental Studies Program and John Wesley Powell Audubon. This talk is free and open to the public.
