Stop Oil Trains
Don't let Santa Barbara County be the site of the next oil train disaster.
Right now, oil giant Phillips 66 is fighting to build a rail terminal at its refinery in San Luis Obispo County to receive trains carrying highly toxic and explosive crude oil. If approved, mile-long oil trains will roll through Santa Barbara County and hundreds of California communities nearly every day en route to the Phillips 66 refinery.
Tens of thousands of citizens - including nurses, teachers, first responders, elected officials, students, and even the Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Goleta City Councils - have voiced their opposition to the project. Now we need to make sure the decision-makers in San Luis Obispo truly hear us.
The San Luis Obispo Planning Commission will hold public hearings on February 4th to inform their decision on the project. That's why we must show SLO County decision-makers that SLO residents and allies across the state are watching. Together, we'll demand they stop Phillips 66 from putting Californian's health and safety at risk.
