NVDA Day of Action Training! 11/10
Join us to get involved in the #StopUintaBasinRailway Day of Action and advocate against a potential disaster for environmental justice and the climate! Local communities across the United States will unite on December 10th to protest an oil train that will derail climate and environmental justice. Come learn more at our Day of Action launch and training on November 10th.
The Uinta Basin Railway will transport crude oil from the Uinta Basin in Utah to refineries on the Gulf Coast. The train risks poisonous spills and devastating fires for those communities along its route. It increases the toxic load on people of color living near Gulf Coast refineries, who already experience disproportionate impacts from heavy industrial processes. The oil from this “rolling pipeline” could increase US carbon emissions by 53 million tons, spelling disaster for emissions reduction goals.
At this event, you will:
Learn about the oil train that will cross the United States from Utah to Louisiana, threatening the lives and livelihoods of all who live along its route.
Get training on how to organize an effective action.
Start planning your action and get feedback on your ideas.
Our trainers, Razz and Devon, will share their many years of organizing experience to help you and your local community protest the permitting of the Uinta Basin Railway.
When: Thursday, November 10th from 5:30-7:30pm MT
