What: Saturday, May 21, 2022, is the 9th annual Global Anti-Chevron Day. Communities in Richmond, CA affected by Chevron will join other communities around the world to share their stories about the impact of the oil company’s environmental destruction and human rights violations in advance of Chevron’s annual shareholder’s meeting on May 25, when the company management will face a barrage of critical shareholder resolutions.

Attendees will include freed human rights lawyer Steven Donziger, who was held under house arrest for almost three years for his work to hold Chevron to account for pollution in Ecuador; Richmond city council members Claudia Jimenez and Eduardo Martinez; and Richmond City youth activists and other community members in support of Chevron workers represented by United Steelworkers Local 5, who at this date have been striking at Chevron for over two months in defense of safe jobs and healthy neighborhoods. This ninth annual global day of action unites labor and environmental organizers in calling out Chevron’s abuses from Ecuador to Myanmar, from the Philippines to Richmond.
