Chevron HQ Award

October 29 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

What this is all about:

Chevron, BP, Phillips 66, and Andeavor have now made Washington state history for the most amount of money ever spent against a people’s initiative. Right now the oil industry is spending close to $30 MILLION to try and defeat Initiative 1631 in Washington, the people’s initiative to accelerate more clean air and clean energy by putting a fee on the worst polluters in the state.

How we are demonstrating:

We are going to the headquarters TODAY: BP (London-based), Phillips 66 (Houston), Tesoro (San Antonio), and Chevron (San Ramon, Bay Area CA) to deliver a large certificate of achievement (Most $$$ Ever Spent Against a People’s Initiative),  some made in Washington (WA) goods.

We have a speaker and a person filming but could really use some more attendees! The speaker will present the award to the front desk at Chevron San Ramon (or perhaps the guards if we can’t get on site) and the filmer will be posting it on Facebook Live with the hashtags. The Bay Area protest will be the last one of the day; London and Texas will have already done theirs that morning.
Who you’re helping out: One of the largest and most diverse coalition’s in Washington state’s history answering back to the oil industry with incredible outreach, people, time, dollars, ideas and more. This is truly a history making coalition on the other side!
