The documentary film, "Radium City" will be shown. It tells the story of the girls who, in the 1920's, worked at a factory in Ottawa, Illinois, painting watch and clock faces with radium-infused paint, in order to make the time pieces glow in the dark. The girls ultimately paid for their labor with their lives. There are still safety issues facing workers today. The program will address how to have their voices heard.
