Refinery Healing Walk of 2017
July 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| Free
Good Evening relatives,
Idle No More SF Bay, a group of Native Americans and our allies, has been organizing the Refinery Healing Walks to bring awareness to the five oil refineries along the Northeast San Francisco Bay since 2014.
Mark your calendars for the last walk on Saturday, July 16th, which is the fourth and final of the year and will begin in Rodeo at the Lone Tree Park (near Conoco Phillips 66 oil refinery) and end in Richmond (past the Chevron refinery) at Keller Beach in Point Richmond.
Cannot attend but would still like to support? We are all very grateful for any assistance you would like to offer. We send you much gratitude and join our prayers with yours for a beautiful future for all of our children. https://www.gofundme.com/2017healingwalks

8:00 a.m. Water Ceremony & Registration
9:30 a.m. Walk Begins
There are several places along the walk where folks can join the walk – please see the details of the route below.
The walk will end in Richmond (past the Chevron refinery) at Keller Beach in Point Richmond.
Please feel free to join us for the prayers for the water at 8:00 a.m. We will walk to the shore and make our prayers. Feel free to bring a small bottle of water from your area to join the waters in the Carquinez Straights (where the Delta meets the Bay) in Pittsburg.
Registration for the walk will begin at 8:00 a.m. Walkers will be asked to agree to the Nonviolent Principles. For details on what to bring/not bring, please go to “What To Expect” in the tabs above at http://www.refineryhealingwalks.com/what-to-expect.html
This walk is approximately 12.9 miles from beginning to end. There will be support vehicles available for people who wish to take breaks during the walk. Medics will also be available. Water will be provided – please bring your reusable water bottle.
. If you know you will need to leave before the end of the walk, please arrange your own ride. To ensure we have enough vehicles on standby, please do these two things:
1) RSVP ASAP for BART pick-up at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your first names and a contact phone number.
A bus (called Iguana!) will take walkers over a 2 mile part of the walk on the freeway between Pittsburg and Martinez. There was no other route available for walkers other than a route that would have added many miles to the walk.
Please RSVP on Facebook: I/We are coming!
A map of the entire walk will be available on this page soon.
See you there,
Idle No More SF Bay
