The Refinery Corridor Healing Walks, started in 2014 by Idle No More SF Bay, were inspired by the Alberta Tar Sands Healing Walks and many other similar Native American journeys. The walks connect the dots between the Tesoro, Shell, Valero, Phillips 66 and Chevron refineries. Walk with Idle No More and the Bay Area Refinery Corridor Coalition to bring attention to the health risks and climate dangers posed by the explosive crude, tar sands and fracked oil these refineries want to bring through our communities.
The fourth and last 2016 Refinery Corridor Healing Walk will begin at the Conoco Phillips 66 Refinery in Rodeo and go to the Chevron refinery in Richmond, ending at Keller Beach in Richmond. There are places along the way where people can join in.
Dallas Goldtooth, the Keep It In The Ground Coordinator for the Indigenous Environmental Network, and Kandi Mossett (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara), Native Energy & Climate Campaign Organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network, will be walking with us.
Join us as we walk in prayer and conversation for:
• Clean air, water and soil
• Safe jobs, roads, railways and waterways
• A vibrant, healthy future for all children
• A just transition to safe and sustainable energy
