We’re getting ready to make history in Richmond — and we need your support! On January 14, we’re mobilizing to tell Richmond City Council to pass the No Coal in Richmond ordinance.

For too long, Richmond families have been breathing toxic coal and petroleum coke dust from the Levin Terminal in Richmond. Our kids who attend Lincoln and Nystrom elementary school are exposed to this poison every day. This is unacceptable.

That’s why groups like APEN and the No Coal in Richmond coalition are bringing people together to protect our health and jobs.

Last month, our city council members put forward an ordinance that will give the terminal 3 years to stop the storage and export of coal/petroleum coke and switch to safer commodities and healthy jobs. Many of our elected officials were ready to pass this ordinance to protect our workers and communities health — but Mayor Tom Butt postponed the vote to make a backroom deal with the corporation.

Our council members are ready to stand with us against corporations like the Levin Richmond Terminal Corporation that poison our communities. Will you join us in standing up for clean air in Richmond?

Sign up to join us on January 14th at 6:30pm at Richmond City Council to pass the No Coal in Richmond ordinance so that all of us can breathe clean air!

We will have t-shirts and banners available for everyone so bring your friends and family members. Together, we have the power to make history and positive change for everyone in Richmond. See you on January 14th!

WHEN: January 14th, 2020, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
WHERE: 440 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond, CA 94804
