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?
