Richmond Chevron Explosion Annual Commemoration. Thursday, Aug. 6

chevron-plume-wide.jpgTo commemorate the 3rd anniversary of the 2012 Richmond Chevron explosion, APEN will hold its annual vigil at 6 pm at the Richmond Civic Center Plaza.

As a community, we will recognize the suffering we have faced and continue to face from living so close to the toxic pollution of the Chevron refinery. We will also celebrate our strength and resilience through collective healing and spiritual expressions. 

At the event, there will be a relay of the Just Transition Quilt, a collective quilt that symbolizes both the breadth and depth of frontline community solutions that offer real hope in the face of climate devastation. The quilt relay will conclude in solidarity with Gulf Coast communities at the 10th Anniversary Commemoration of Hurricane Katrina. 

This will be one the local events of the Summer of Our Power.

This event is sponsored by the Asian Pacific Environmental Network.
