This weekend will mark the second anniversary of the Lac-Mégantic oil train disaster in Quebec —a derailment and explosion that killed 47 people on July 5, 2013. Let us honor the lives lost, and work to make sure that no more communities have to experience such devastation.
We’ve been working hard to stop dangerous oil trains, and it’s time to take our fight to the next level. From July 6 to 12, thousands of people across the US and Canada will stand up to Big Oil’s explosive, toxic, climate-wrecking oil trains. I thought you’d want to get in on the action.
Be a part of the Stop Oil Trains Week of Action: RSVP to an event in your area.
We’re helping to organize 100 events across the US and Canada for the Stop Oil Trains Week of Action, and they won’t be a success without you.
Go to StopOilTrains.org to find an event in your area.
Big Oil will stop at nothing to extract, transport, and burn every drop of oil in the ground -- even if it means putting our communities at risk, shipping millions of gallons of volatile Bakken crude through our cities and towns. Oil trains are a disaster waiting to happen for our health, our safety, and our climate.
We CAN stop these dangerous oil trains from rolling through our communities, but it’s going to take all of us standing together.

For our communities, our children and our climate,
