From the facebook event page:

Come learn how the 19143 area could be affected by an oil train disaster, and talk about what we can do to protect our community and others across the city. Every day, dangerous mile-long trains bring explosive oil through Kingsessing on their way to the refinery in South Philly. They release toxic pollution into the air, and there is a constant risk of accidents and explosions.

Come to the auditorium at Kingsessing Rec Center for a conversation about the dangers that these trains present and about ways to take action!

An event a part of the national Stop Oil Trains Week Of Action!
