Attend a public hearing to speak about protection of our coastlines and the importance of oil spill containment and rapid response. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (formally the MMS--the agency who oversees drilling for the U.S.) needs to hear from you. Our collective voice as a community can help decision makers prepare better safety mechanisms and response plans.
This will also be a great opportunity to voice your opposition to new offshore drilling which our Federal Government is currently considering along the east coast and sensitive parts of Alaska. Join Surfrider Foundation activists as we speak out against new drilling and spread the message that offshore oil drilling in not the answer.
