Monsanto, PCBs and The Spokane River

A community workshop with Peter Von Stackelburg, a writer and storyteller involved in the “Poison Papers” project. Von Stackelburg will discuss how the chemical manufacturer, Monsanto continued to produce and sell toxic industrial chemicals known as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for eight years after learning that they posed hazards to public health and the environment. The event also features Lee First, the Spokane Riverkeeper’s River Toxics Outreach Coordinator, to discuss what PCBs are, their effects on human health, and the extent of PCB contamination in the Spokane River.
