We will begin in Martinez and walk through the Shell Refinery in Martinez on the public road.  It gets exciting when we walk across the Martinez Benicia Bridge over the Carquinez Straights!  Once we get to Benicia, we head over to the Valero Refinery where we stop to pray for clean air, water, soil and safe jobs in our communities.   We then walk through town to the 9th Street Park for the closing circle, a meal and the final prayers for the waters.

All walkers are encouraged to carry the water for at least five minutes in prayer for the life of the waters around the world.
