The 1984 Bhopal disaster in India will be discussed at the Feb. 16 meeting of the Eastern Washington Chapter of the Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers.
Adriane Borgias, a Fulbright-Nehru scholar in India in 2011, will describe her personal pilgrimage to Bhopal, the site of the worst industrial accident in the history of mankind. Hundreds of thousands of people were exposed to a massive gas and chemical leak and as many as 8,000 people are estimated to have died.
Borgias met with attorneys, victims, residents, the state, accident responders and youth.
She will show photos and discuss personal and corporate social responsibility.
The meeting is at 6 p.m. in the main conference room of the Richland Library, 955 Northgate Drive.
