Heron's Head Park Jennings Ave between Evans St and Cargo Way
From T Line on Third St.
San Francisco Is On The Line -Help Us Draw the Line
Saturday, September 21, 12:00 PM HERON'S HEAD PARK- Off the T Line- Cargo or Evans stops. San Francisco, CA CA 94117 Join us THIS SATURDAY, 9/21/13, at Heron's Head Park on the San Francisco waterfront, with Green Action for Health and Environmental Justice, and 350 San Francisco/350 Bay Area to call attention to how SEA LEVEL RISE due to Climate Change will impact SF's local neighborhoods and to say no to the KXL Pipeline.
For the sake of communities like the Bayview/Hunterspoint, projects like the Keystone XL pipeline cannot be allowed to go through because of the dramatic increase in CO2 emissions. Large tracts of Bayview Hunters Point and Treasure island are at sea level and are also situated on or next to toxic and radioactively contaminated sites.
These neighborhoods could be subject not only to flooding but also to the "perfect storm" of combined interactions of sea level rise, earthquake liquefaction and soil contamination. This will be a fun, get to know your community event bringing residents and environmental organizations together to draw the line against climate change and environmental racism, for air we can breathe, water we can drink, and healthy communities.
Bike, muni or carpool to join us. Bring your own signs and 6.5 feet tall poles to mark the high water line, if we continue on our current green house gas emission trend. STOP CLIMATE CHANGE! SEA RISE + TOXIC SITES = DESTROYED NEIGHBORHOODS NO KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE!
