A short film about the impacts of Colorado's only oil refinery on our communities’ public health.
Suncor Energy, a Canadian company, runs an oil refinery north of Denver Colorado. Suncor is one of Colorado’s largest emitters of greenhouse gasses, as well as one of the largest emitters of toxic air pollutants, and has been operating without any changes to its operations or pollution controls for years.
In spite of numerous enforcement actions and settlements, Suncor continues to flout air quality laws, putting neighboring communities – who are primarily Latino and low income – at extreme risk.
This is their story.
