Virtual Event Bennington College

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Join Beyond Plastics and award-winning investigative journalist, Sharon Lerner for a free webinar delving into Lerner’s recent expose of 3M’s decades-long cover-up of the “forever chemical” PFOS/PFAS. Lerner’s article, published in both ProPublica and the New Yorker, details the experience of a 3M scientist who discovered PFOS in the blood of the general public and then learned that the company had buried evidence that the chemical was in everyone's bodies decades earlier.

What is PFOS? How did it get to be present in almost every human’s blood, including newborn babies? What are its impacts on our health and environment? How does this “forever chemical” relate to plastics? And what can you do to protect yourself and prevent future health impacts and environmental harms?

Join us at 7:00 PM ET U.S. on Wednesday, July 24 to hear directly from Lerner and learn more.
