The Bay Area Rights of Nature Ethics Tribunal will examine the violations of nature’s rights and human rights caused by the fossil fuel industry, using Chevron’s refinery in Richmond as a case study. By highlighting the impacts on people and nature from the Chevron refinery and “Big Oil” activities, the Tribunal will also place on trial current legal and economic systems that advance the destruction of nature.
Tribunal judges include:
- Carl Anthony (Breakthrough Communities; Urban Habitat)
- Brian Swimme (California Institute of Integral Studies; Journey of the Universe)
- Anuradha Mittal (Oakland Institute)
- Courtney Cummings (Arikara and Cheyenne; Native Wellness Center, Richmond)
