Summary

#ncmaps

In North Carolina, more than 2,200 hog factory farms housing more than 10 million hogs are disproportionately located in communities of color. These factory farms generate enormous amounts of untreated animal waste, which is stored in giant cesspools and sprayed on fields until they are so saturated that runoff pollutes nearby streams and rivers, negatively impacting the daily life of residents. Waterkeeper Alliance developed a strategic multimedia campaign using video, GIS mapping and social media to educate North Carolinians on this issue; this session will inform attendees on the process and results of this campaign.
