Rally: Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board Meeting
Please mark your calendar to join Communities for a Better Environment, the Sunflower Alliance, the Richmond Environmental Justice Coalition, Idle No More and many others for a rally at the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board Meeting at 939 Ellis St. San Francisco on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. We will rally at 9:00 a.m. and then go inside for the Board meeting at 9:45 a.m.
What is at Stake?
- The Board will receive a report, that we have requested, to address the linkages of all of the Bay Area proposed Crude by Rail/Refinery Projects. We believe staff will try and downplay the connections and deny the Oil Industry has a Master Plan for the Bay Area Refinery Corridor.
- Staff has been caving into the Oil Industry on the Regional Green House Gas Emissions Rule. It is imperative we let the Board members know the community is deeply engaged in these issues.
- We need to show support to our allies on the Board who want to see Bay Area Green House Gas Emissions reduced substantially.
A delegation of us from Richmond will arrive by BART. We will meet at Richmond BART at 8:00 a.m. to catch the train and get off at the Civic Center BART Station.
