Scotch Plains Public Library would like to invite you to attend a free
screening and film discussion of Rescuing the River on Monday, October 29
at 7:00 PM.
Rescuing the River is a documentary film exploring the history of
industrial activity, political activism, and legal action surrounding the
cleanup of contaminated sites along New Jersey’s Raritan River, raising
questions of legal and moral culpability.
A post-screening discussion based on the historical, cultural, and ethical
themes and issues raised by the film will follow, facilitated by Neil
Maher, Associate Professor, Federated Department of History at
As a participant in Face to Face: Community Conversations, a program of
