Valero CBR proposal poses major risks. Public comment, Feb 8 Outrageous.  Benicia City Staff is recommending approval of Valero’s dangerous crude-by-rail proposal, despite the “significant and unavoidable” impacts to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, biological resources and public safety outlined by the Final EIR, which clearly identifies the “No Project Alternative” as the “Environmentally Superior Alternative.”  Staff declares that federal preemeption prevents it from objecting to rail-related hazards, even as it parrots Valero’s arguments about the blessings of lowered GHGs and increased jobs and economic benefits. Make sure you’ve already … Continued

JOBS & JUSTICE – Stop Budget Cuts to Oakland Job Seekers @ Oakland City Hall
Feb 9 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Every member of the City Council says they want to stop the displacement of Black, Brown and poor people from Oakland. But there’s no better way to displace a population than to take away their access to work. Yet again, our elected leaders have failed to live up to their rhetoric or prioritize the interests of the people they represent. The behind-closed-doors deals that are made by Oakland city officials must end. Pushing an RFP that cuts services to Oakland’s unemployed (primarily Black and Latino males) must be illuminated just … Continued

We were asked by the Federal Monitor team to convene a community event in which folks who had had encounters with OP D in the last two or three years would give testimony about their experiences. The Monitor are interested in hearing directly from those who had negative experiences. They want to know what happened — when, where – and whether or not a complaint was filed, and, if so, what was the outcome, so they can do follow up. We promised to … Continued
