Surrounded by Canada's densest concentration of chemical manufacturing plants, members of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation have expressed concern about a declining male birth rate and high incidences of miscarriage, asthma, cancer, and cardiovascular illness. Everyday Exposure uncovers the systemic injustices they face as they fight for environmental justice.
