Hands Off Our Offshore Ecosystems, Big Oil!

oil-spill

Washington residents, our shores are in danger.

New rollback of environmental regulation means that extensive offshore drilling is now proposed in the Pacific. We do not want oil spills wrecking our fisheries and beaches, and destroying the health and cultures of Indigenous people. We do not want to lock ourselves into even more fossil fuel dependence.

Let the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) know your thoughts at a public hearing on Monday.

What: Public Meeting about Offshore Drilling and People’s Hearing
Where: Hotel RL Olympia by Red Lion, 2300 Evergreen Park Dr SW
When: Monday, March 5, 1:30 – 7:30 pm
1:30-2:00 Keynote Speakers
2:00-7:30 People’s Hearing
3:00-7:00 BOEM Open House
5:00-6:00 Dinner

If you need transportation, you can join a carpool HERE.
