There is some bad news for Santa Clara County: A large-scale oil train terminal is underway in Santa Maria, CA, that would bring mile-long trains carrying millions of gallons dangerous, toxic crude oil right through San José and Santa Clara County. This project will exacerbate climate disruption and threaten the health and safety of millions who live along the tracks. The good news is we can stop it! There is a growing coalition from all along the rail route uniting to stop this project. Join us for an educational forum bringing together citizens, elected officials, technical experts, and local leaders to highlight the environmental and health impacts of the Santa Maria Phillips 66 Rail Project. The forum will equip citizens with the necessary tools to fight this oil train expansion and protect our community. Speakers include San Jose City Councilman Ash Kalra, Pierre Delforge from 350 Silicon Valley, Matt Krogh with Forest Ethics, and more.
