Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate “The Brown Agenda” at the event held Wednesday night, November 11, at the Upper West Side Barnes & Noble on West 82nd and Broadway.
Damon introduced his co-author, Richard Fuller (both shown in picture above). Rich then read from the book’s introduction before taking several thoughtful questions from the audience regarding the ongoing fight against toxic conditions in low and middle income countries.

You don’t have to wait to read the introduction to “The Brown Agenda,” Damon’s new book with environmentalist and entrepreneur Richard Fuller. Salon.com ran it as a headlining excerpt on Sunday August 9, 2015 (two days before the book’s official debut).
Pollution is the single largest cause of death in the developing world. One in seven people in low- and middle-income countries die as a result of it. Simply put, pollution is now the world’s most prevalent health risk. And yet, while most everyone has heard about “going green,” few are aware of the more dire and sinister “brown” pollution—places where man-made toxic pollutants have taken root and spread. Brown sites poison millions of people every year, causing needless suffering and death.
