Tonopah residents and activists who have been fighting against nearby Hickman’s Family Farms operations for around half a decade just got a national boost via the documentary “Right to Harm.”
Residents allege adverse health and other issues as a direct result of Hickman’s presence in their community. One of the film’s focal points, Sonia Lopez, reported her son’s health improved when they moved 26 miles away from Hickman’s.
The film, which was recently screened by ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, covers five stories in eight states and a host of residents who live near concentrated animal feed operations (CAFOs). The lengthy Hickman’s situation, which spans Tonopah and Arlington, is one portion of the film.
