The Rev. Ken Chambers, pastor of West Side Missionary Baptist Church, will host a Community Meeting on Coal at the church one half block from Main Post Office off of 7th Street near the West Oakland BART station.
"The city of Oakland took an important step recently documenting the health and safety risks and climate impacts of coal and specifically banning its shipment through the city. Other localities should follow suit -- and the state should too -- to reduce and, ultimately, eliminate the shipment of coal through all California ports." - Gov. Jerry Brown, August 26, 2016
