Join Communities for a Better Environment, Asian Pacific Environmental Network, and the Richmond Our Power Coalition (ROPC) at the first of a series of ROPC Just Transition town halls. At Decommissioning Refineries in the Bay Area, imagine the progressive closure of Bay Area refineries where the host communities and workers are protected economically and socially! For the City of Richmond, this means imagining a future Beyond Chevron.
Richmond is trapped in a toxic relationship with Chevron. For over a century:
- Chevron has polluted Richmond’s air, water, land, and politics,
- Chevron has pitted community groups against one another through its philanthropy,
- Chevron has gaslit and lied to Richmond, claiming that its toxic flaring and daily emissions are safe.
It’s time to envision a future Beyond Chevron. Working together we can make sure that the inevitable transition from Chevron and the extractive economy supports communities and workers, centers justice and healing, and builds a regenerative, feminist economy.
Come join this community town hall hosted by Communities for a Better Environment to hear stories from community members and to vision together what can come next.
** Priority attendance for Richmond / San Pablo residents and those directly impacted by Chevron. **
