Join activist, radio DJ and raconteur Andrés Soto on a Toxics and Resilience Tour of Richmond. He’ll be the tour guide on a trek through Richmond’s most toxic and extractive sites, as well as resilient spaces of resistance and projects run by and for Richmond community members. Soto is a Richmond native and the Northern California organizer for Communities for a Better Environment (CBE).
Highlights include: Richmond social justice history, visits to the Urban Tilth Farm in North Richmond and the Richmond Greenway gardens and murals, remnants of Ohlone shellmounds and Indigenous history, history and views of the Chevron Richmond refinery, and much more.
Participants are asked to make a $20 or sliding-scale donation to support the cost of running the tour. Bring a sandwich and snacks—there will be a picnic at Pt. Molate during the tour.
There will be two other tours on September 23 and October 28.
