Hosted by UNC Chapel Hill Wilson Library

  • Location: UNC Chapel Hill Wilson Library
  • Description:
    • This exhibition is open July 25-December 22, 2022, showcasing four years of how a group of concerned citizens in Afton (Warren County) responded to the state’s plan to build a toxic landfill laced with cancer-causing PCBs in their community, mounting legal and scientific challenges to what they deemed an act of “toxic aggression.”
