Rally and March for a Safer South Bay
February 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
The Torrance and Wilmington refineries are the last two in California to use deadly hydrofluoric acid in their operations. If released into the atmosphere, this chemical is a serious and even deadly health threat to South Bay residents. If the chemical becomes airborne, it can travel as far as El Segundo and Palos Verdes. These refineries have refused to replace this chemical in their operations for years, even after near miss accidents. Join us February 18 for a rally and march to demand the refineries switch to existing, safer alternatives!
When: February 18 – 10am
Where: Columbia Park – 190th and Prairie
