Philly Thrive

$2,150 to support the Refinery Resistance School for Organizers that will bring together for a series of organizing and direct action workshops frontline community members in Philadelphia who are emerging as leaders in a campaign seeking to shift political support against fossil fuel industry projects and towards a green economy for all, while specifically working to shut down the largest oil refinery on the East Coast. Participants are mostly African American and Latina and live on the fenceline of the refinery and are impacted by its health effects daily.
