Climate Strike at Chevron, September 27
On the day of the global climate strike, join Youth vs Apocalypse and members of frontline communities to protest Chevron’s irresponsibility. Chevron knowingly pollutes the Richmond area, the Central Valley, the Earth, and many other communities. And to no one’s surprise, Chevron is getting away with it. Even when they are put on trial, our government fails to hold them responsible. Thus, the responsibility is now ours. We will be demanding that Chevron gets off of fossil fuels by 2025 and that they stop using their influence to lie and harm frontline communities, and the future. We are also demanding that the governor speak up about this and stop Chevron from further destroying the Earth.
