Join us during the Promise to Protect training weekend for an evening art build to create imagery, messaging, and designs that support the fight to stop the proposed Bay Area refinery expansion.

Oil giant Phillips 66 wants to dramatically expand its San Francisco Bay marine terminal and refinery so it can process more toxic tar sands from Canada. This would threaten worker safety, degrade our climate, and worsen the quality of life for everyone living in the shadow of the Phillips 66 refinery— and the entire Bay Area. Tar sands oil is some of the dirtiest in the world, and beyond air quality concerns, even a single spill would be disastrous for communities that call the Bay home—or any community along the transport route that begins at Alberta's tar sands in Canada.

Make art for a tar sands free SF Bay. Wear clothes that you don't mind getting paint on. Food, drinks and childcare provided for all who make art to protect the bay with us on Saturday night.

This art build is located in a large indoor space near West Oakland BART station. Street parking is available and the space is ADA accessible. For more information about this event, please contact Isabella Zizi via email: isabella [at] stand.earth
