On Saturday, February 18th, we are marching to the Torrance Refinery to take a stand for the health and safety of our communities.
Torrance Refining Company and Valero’s Wilmington Refinery are the only California refineries that use Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) and “Modified” Hydrofluoric Acid (MHF). Exposure to HF can lead to irreversible organ damage, deep tissue damage, and death. Two years ago, the Exxon Mobil explosion in Torrance missed one of these MHF tanks by only a few feet.
We strongly support the heroic community efforts made by the grassroots groups Torrance Refinery Action Alliance and FLARE.. They have kept the public informed and performed a public service calling attention to the many dangers of the Torrance Refinery. Banning the use of MHF at these refineries is a critical first step in addressing the toxic dangers of the refinery. HF and MHF are among the most toxic substances on the planet, and it must be banned immediately.
Our great allies of the National Nurses United union are holding OUR FIRST STAND: HEALTHCARE at world famous Grumman’s Chinese Theatre. They know what we know – that the climate crisis is a health crisis.
Be there with us for the Light Brigade rally and demonstration. WE STAND WITH THE NURSES!
