Connect the Dots: Refinery Corridor Healing Walk #4
Start: Saturday, July 12, 2014• 8:00 AM
It's time to transition to a fossil free future & stop the potentially explosive Bakken crude oil trains. Join us for the fourth of four healing walks along the refinery corridor in Northeast San Francisco Bay. We will begin at the Lone Tree Park (End of Parker Ave) in Rodeo and walk in prayer and conversation to the Chevron Refinery in Richmond. Please see below for full details, map, schedule, transportation, etc.
Native American elders and those in prayer will lead the walk, stopping to pray at certain places. The walk is approximately 13 miles with support vehicles so that walkers can rest whenever they would like. There are also several places where walkers can join the walk along the route - see map below.
Around the last mile, walkers will be encouraged to begin imagining their own communities beyond fossil fuel. Walkers will be invited to share those ideas with their own drawings on muslin at the end of the walk. The muslin squares will be sewn in to a quilt and shared publicly. Art from previous walks will be exhibited. Joining us? Please make sure to check back for more details no later than July 10.
