Dark Waters: The Story Behind the Environmental Legal Battle Exposing Corporate Cover-up

Join Women for a Healthy Environment’s 10-year anniversary celebration featuring the internationally recognized environmental attorney, Robert Bilott!

The New York Times called Mr. Bilott, “The lawyer who became DuPont’s worst nightmare.” Bilott shares the unsettling story of his epic legal battle against DuPont and how he exposed corporate coverup and massive chemical contamination of unprecedented scale and scope, now impacting virtually every living thing on this planet.

Drawing from his book, Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle Against Dupont, Bilott will take us through the unforgettable legal drama about malice, manipulation, and perseverance against the failings of environmental regulation. The story in his book inspired the major motion picture, Dark Waters (November 2019), featuring Academy Award winner Mark Ruffalo as Rob Bilott.

The first 200 registrants will be given access to an online viewing of the motion picture, Dark Waters, several days before our virtual event.
