Transportation of explosive and toxic crude-by-rail poses a grave danger to our communities, as it does to communities across North America.
In commemoration of the tragedy in Lac Megantic, Quebec, (July 6, 2013), we will gather at Atchison Village Park in Richmond, march to the gates of the BNSF/Kinder-Morgan rail terminal a few blocks away, then continue on to Washington Park to enjoy music, speakers and a family-friendly festival.
