We would like to invite you to a screening of Bhopali, followed by a discussion with Sanjay Verma, Bhopal survivor and activist.

Doors open at 3:30 pm.

Donations encouraged; nobody turned away.


Bhopali is a documentary about the experience of second-generation children affected by the world's worst industrial disaster - the 1984 Union Carbide Gas Leak in Bhopal, India. Thousands were killed and affected by this disaster – and the suffering continues even after 26 years. The Bhopal disaster did not happen, but rather is still happening to the people of the region...

Discussant Sanjay Verma is a Bhopal Gas Disaster survivor and activist. He is featured in the film, and has worked tirelessly for justice in Bhopal.

Beyond this we seeks to help, support, and share knowledge and resources with communities all over the world that are similarly impacted by chemical contamination and irresponsible development.
