Refineries to Renewables 10/27

A Just Transition: Refineries to Renewables 

Do you know if your home lies within an oil train blast zone? How many people in your community have suffered health issues related to Bay Area refineries? Oil travels through the Bay Area every day -- where does it come from, and where does it go?

Most Bay Area residents are not aware of the extent to which their homes, workplaces and local communities are affected by local refineries and refinery-related transport. In this interactive conversation, Bay Area "refinery row" residents and energy visionaries will offer testimony on their shared work toward a sustainable energy future. Speakers will include Jack Lucero Fleck of 350 Bay Area, Jessica Hendricks of Global Community Monitor, oil and energy expert Antonia Juhasz, Greg Karras of Communities for a Better Environment, Colin Miller of Bay Localize, Janet Pygeorge of the Rodeo Citizens Association and Nancy Rieser of Bay Area Refinery Corridor Coalition. Together we'll consider what speeds a just transition from fossil fuels, what we can learn from local actions and partnerships, and what justice has to do with all of this.

Sliding Scale $2-10
