The Levin-Richmond terminal shipped 1.1 million metric tons of coal in 2017 (figures for 2018 not yet available). Mile-long coal trains of 100 open railcars each run through residential neighborhoods and are unloaded at the terminal only a few blocks blocks from homes, schools, and workplaces. From there the coal gets shipped to Asia and Mexico.

No Coal in Richmond is going door-to-door to educate our residents and collect signatures on a letter to the Richmond City Council demanding immediate action on this public health and climate hazard. We need your help! Could you schedule a few hours with us?

WHEN: Sunday, February 24, 1:30–5 pm
WHERE: Meet at the Bobby Bowens Progressive Center, 2540 Macdonald Ave. (10-minute walk from Richmond BART station, parking available next to the library across the street)
