“As Washington remains in gridlock, the everyday citizen-heroes of Richmond, California have been getting things done to make their city work for all. Refinery Town is essential reading for anyone seeking inspiration for what grassroots organizing can accomplish, one community at a time.”

– Robert B. Reich, former U.S. Secretary of Labor


“Frontline communities have a key role to play in our climate movement. Richmond's creative resistance to Chevron is a model for environmental justice campaigners everywhere in the U.S. and abroad who face tough struggles of their own against Big Oil and big money. Steve Early's retelling of Richmond's story proves that making real change is possible.”

– Annie Leonard, Executive Director, Greenpeace USA
