Dear Global Exchange Supporter,
Before it exploded, BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling rig was owned and operated by Transocean, the same company Chevron--the largest leaseholder in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico--contracts with for its massive Gulf offshore operations.
The world cannot afford another oil disaster like this one. Help Global Exchange create real change.
Across the globe, Chevron's operations put our climate, security, and the health of our communities at great risk. That's why it's the focus of a growing resistance movement. Help us raise the voices of those communities hardest hit by Chevron's abusive practices at its annual shareholder meeting on May 26 in Houston.
- A $50 donation will help us release the True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report 2010, a devastating indictment of Chevron's 2009 operations.
- A gift of $100 will help us bring community leaders from across the country to tell the truth about Chevron and reveal its real impacts: its toxic legacy in Richmond, California; its dangerous offshore drilling operations in Cook Inlet, Alaska; its cancer-causing Pascagoula refinery in Mississippi; its deadly coal operations in New Mexico; and more. $350 will sponsor an entire trip!
- A $500 contribution will help us bring international community leaders from Burma, Ecuador, Angola, Nigeria, Colombia, Kazakhstan, Australia, Thailand, and more to Houston to reveal Chevron's gross human rights abuses, support of brutal dictators, environmental devastation, community displacement, economic abuse, and much more.
Any donation amount will help, whether it is $10 or $1,000!
We are challenging one of the wealthiest entities on the planet: Chevron's hundreds of billions of dollars in 2009 revenue make it the world's 46th largest economy. We cannot take on Chevron alone. Please join us, and make the most generous gift you can.
There are many ways you can support our efforts.

Chevron can run to Houston, but with your Help, it cannot Hide!
