June 3 Talk on Oil Trains

Mark your calendar:

Next month, Eric de Place will be in Anacortes to discuss the alarming growth in oil train traffic through Skagit County and the costs and consequences of the oil-by-rail industry for local residents.

We hope you can make it that evening, and if you can, spread the word to friends and family as well.

  • What: The Thin Green Line: Anacortes Faces the Costs and Consequences of Oil Trains, a presentation and Q&A with Sightline Institute policy director Eric de Place
  • When: Wednesday, June 3rd, 7:00 PM (Doors open at 6:30)
  • Where: Depot Arts Center, 611 R Avenue, Anacortes, WA
This event is free and open to the public, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so please arrive early. There will be coffee, tea, and dessert to help warm things up.

P.S. In case you missed it, Sightline rounded up ten recent oil train explosions, in photos. It got a lot of attention on social media, and it was even mentioned in this news article.
