PCIM and the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF) hosted a discussion with Rodrigo Brandão and Sharon Lerner from investigative independent news outlet The Intercept on Wednesday, March 24.
Moderated by Raza Rumi, the conversation centered recent stories by Sharon Lerner that interrogated the human cost of cancer-causing emissions from large factories near towns. Rodrigo Brandão offered insights to The Intercept’s mission and function as an adversarial news organization, and abundant reports by Lerner demonstrated a commitment to accountability. Lerner details several other stories (linked below) covering health and the environment, including global vaccine equity and COVID-19 cases by location in New York City.
