Community Event

Refinery Corridor Healing Walk

This event has passed.

Join us for the third of four healing walks along the refinery corridor in Northeast San Francisco Bay.

We will begin at the 9th Street Park in Benicia (Valero Refinery) and walk in prayer and conversation to Lone Tree Park in Rodeo (Phillips 66 Refinery).

To RSVP, and for full details, schedule, bicycle contingent, and transportation options, please visit the Connect the Dots website.

Native American elders and community members will lead the walk, stopping to pray at certain places, including the water. We will walk from the 9th Street Park in Benicia to the Lone Tree Point in Rodeo, and will be walking over the Carquinez Bridge. The walk is approximately 14 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 (Details below).

Around the last mile, walkers will be encouraged to begin imagining their own communities beyond fossil fuels and what they would ideally be like. 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 at the last walk on July 12 (Rodeo (Phillips 66) to Richmond (Chevron). Art from previous walks will be exhibited. Joining us? Please make sure to check back for more details no later than June 11.
