Speak Out in Your Community: Stop President Trump's Offshore Drilling Assault
The Trump administration has released a disastrous proposal to auction off huge swaths of America’s oceans for oil and gas drilling.
From Maine to Florida, Washington State to California, across the Arctic and in the Gulf of Mexico, President Trump’s and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s dangerous five-year offshore drilling plan could put drill rigs off the coast of virtually any state and oil slicks up and down our shores.
Their dirty fossil fuel scheme threatens coastal communities, whales, and other marine life with catastrophic oil spills. It diverts our path to a clean energy future and keeps us shackled to the heavily polluting fossil fuels of the past. The proposal is nothing more than another handout to private oil companies, forcing taxpayers to continue subsidizing the fossil fuel industry.
We need you to help fight back! Show your opposition by attending a Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) public meeting or activist event, make your voice heard in your community and at your lawmakers' offices, and help mobilize a nationwide public outcry on all fronts to stop this reckless drilling plan and save our coasts.
Here’s how you can get involved:
- Attend a BOEM public meeting or activist event (list below)
- Gather petition signatures offline (PDF) to oppose drilling off our coasts
- Send an official public comment letter to the Department of the Interior opposing this disastrous drilling proposal
- Send messages of protest to your senators and representative online, and share with your friends
- Join the ALL IN Community to connect with activists about this issue in your area
