No Coal in Richmond Canvassing @ Bobby Bowens Progressive Center
Mar 24 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

​If you learned that coal dust containing arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium was blowing through your neighborhood, wouldn’t you want to take action? Come help No Coal in Richmond reach out to as many residents as possible between now and late March or early April. That’s when the Richmond City Council will vote on an ordinance to prohibit new coal or pet coke facilities, prevent the Levin-Richmond Terminal from expanding, and phase out existing coal handling and storage.

​We have less than a month to reach the most affected Richmond residents about the massive amounts of coal-for-export coming through their neighborhoods in 100-car trains of open rail cars and sitting in uncovered piles next to the Bay, just blocks from homes, schools, and workplaces.

We’re door-knocking every weekend between now and late March or early April to
collect emails and signatures on a letter to the council demanding the strongest
possible ordinance.

And talk about gratifying! Nearly all those who answer the door say, “No coal in
Richmond? Where do I sign?” and proceed to thank you profusely for doing this.
Check out the new and improved No Coal in Richmond website for background, up-
to-the minute news, and other ways you can fight this climate and public health
menace in Richmond.

Mar 30 all-day

National Mobilization to Peacefully Stop U.S. Drone Wars
 March 30 – April 5, 2019
(Saturday through Friday)

Our beautiful, weeklong peaceful convergence in the Nevada Desert is almost here!   We can’t wait to see you all, and work together to GROUND the DRONES!
Please register HERE, so we can best serve everyone.

This is a special year because it marks the 10th anniversary of Bay Area CODEPINK’s twice yearly resistance to killer drones at Creech Air Force Base.  It is also marks the 5th annual national mobilization known as “SHUT DOWN CREECH.”  Help us make this push for peace exceptional!  Be there!

Special theme:  In solidarity with the national call to action to protest the 70th anniversary of NATO Summit in Washington DC, we will devote one day at Creech promoting: “ABOLISH NATO, DE-MILITARIZE NOW!”
Please come for part or all of this amazing Peace Convergence to nonviolently resist the illegal U.S. drone targeted assassination program.  Stay at the newly relocated CAMP JUSTICE peace encampment, set up on the “Goddess Temple” grounds, 3 miles from Creech AFB.  Most meals provided. We will send you a transportation form after you register with us, to coordinate ride shares to/from Camp Justice & Las Vegas.  Click on tabs at the top of this page for detailed info about:   Housing, Transportation, Camp Justice, Meals, Sponsorship, Registration, etc.
