Refinery Town: Big Oil, Big Money, and the Remaking of an American City Book Discussion 

When: Tue., Feb. 28, 6:30-7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: Free
www.oaklandlibrary.org
Join Steve Early for a discussion of Refinery Town which tells the story of Richmond, California and how 15 years of civic activism improved public safety, raised Richmond's minimum wage, challenged home foreclosures and evictions and demanded fair taxation of Big Oil and Big Soda. This compelling story of a city remade provides a model for citizens engaged in local politics and community building anywhere.
