The True Cost of Chevron

By Brant Ran

We’re excited to announce an “alternative annual report” on Chevron due for release May 26th. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but can say that it’s the most thorough and up-to-date documentation of Chevron’s global troubles that I’ve seen. And just in time! Chevron’s shareholder meeting is May 27th.

Antonia Juhasz was lead author and editor. She helped to corral an all-star cast of of contributing authors, researchers and designers to document conflicts between Chevron and communities from Ecuador to Richmond, CA. It also features great new creative concepts from Design Action It was a pleasure to have contributed. Read the full report (after May 26th) and find ways to support this work at

Catch a sneak-peek after the jump.
