Mile-long coal trains of 100 open railcars run through Richmond’s residential neighborhoods and are unloaded at the Levin-Richmond Terminal, only a few blocks from homes, schools, and workplaces. From there the coal is shipped to Asia and Mexico.
Join the movement to end the shipment of toxic and climate-destroying coal and petroleum coke from Richmond!
DOOR-TO-DOOR CANVASSING: SUNDAY, FEB 24
A critical part of this campaign is reaching out to coal-dust–impacted Richmond residents. Going door-to-door is the best way to get the word out to affected neighborhoods. No Coal in Richmond is now canvassing to spread awareness and collect signatures on a letter to the Richmond City Council demanding immediate action on this public health and climate hazard. We need your help! Could you schedule a few hours with us?
Sunday, February 24, 1:30–4 pm
Meet at the Bobby Bowens Progressive Center
2540 Macdonald Ave.
(10-minute walk from Richmond BART station, parking available next to the library across the street)
