Stand Up to Oil

Rapid and dramatic changes to oil transportation pose serious new threats to Northwest communities, economies and waterways.

Oil companies stand to make huge profits while Northwest communities bear the risks and costs of explosive oil train derailments, a huge increase in rail traffic, and oil spills from trains, tankers and barges into our rivers, streams and coastlines.

Stand Up to Oil is a growing coalition of groups opposed to new oil terminals and an increase in oil transport through the Northwest, while working to improve safety measures for oil currently traveling through the region. Core members include: Columbia Riverkeeper, Earthjustice, Friends of the Columbia Gorge, Friends of the Earth, Friends of the San Juans, The Lands Council, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, Sierra Club, STAND, Washington Environmental Council, and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility.
