Today, thirty-six organizations unveiled a collaborative effort called Gulf Future: A Unified Action Plan for A Healthy Gulf. The diverse group is made up of fishermen, faith leaders, environmentalists, clean-up workers, and residents who live, work, and play on the Gulf Coast. The organizations come from all five Gulf Coast states and represent culturally and racially diverse communities.
Divided into four areas of concern – marine restoration and resiliency, coastal restoration and resiliency, community recovery and resiliency, and public health – the Gulf Future action plan expresses immediate goals, including specific demands of Congress, federal agencies, and the Obama administration for a healthy and whole Gulf Coast.
