Chevron Watch

Our Purpose

Chevron is the largest corporate producer of greenhouse gases in the world! Let us help them reduce their footprint and their release of toxins.
The 350 Bay Area Stop Chevron campaign has two targets:
  • Chevron Refinery in Richmond
  • Chevron International HQ in San Ramon. 
Richmond
  • air monitoring, warning system
  • new, reliable pipes
  • alliances w/ groups in Richmond
  • One Bay Area Plan that dramatically reduces dependence on fossil fuels
San Ramon

In 2014, Chevron moved its shareholders' meeting from San Ramon to Texas. Looks like our demonstration in 2013 had an impact!

In 2014, we joined Amazon Watch and others in a demonstration in San Francisco in solidarity with the Texas demonstration.

For more information, please contact Rev. Earl Koteen 510.473.2750.
