Lawsuit challenges explosive crude-by-rail shipments to Richmond, Calif.

Environmental justice and conservation groups filed a lawsuit March 27 against Kinder Morgan and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) to halt the shipment of highly explosive and toxic crude oil into the City of Richmond, a community already burdened by intense pollution caused by the fossil fuel industry. “This dirty and dangerous project does not belong in Richmond.”

Environmental justice advocates win major victory over Chevron in Richmond

Chevron's 107-year-old Richmond refinery is the largest industrial polluter in the region, and communities in Richmond, particularly low-income and communities of color, already suffer from industrial pollution-related health problems. Putting a halt on this expansion project will prevent increased pollution in Richmond and throughout the Bay Area.
