Another Gulf is Possible

 

Join UsJoin us in New Orleans this Saturday, August 20th, as we stand with Gulf Coast communities in resistance to extraction and in solidarity with all fights for justice. Together, we will call for an end to new offshore leasing in the Gulf of Mexico and for a just transition for our region.

What: Gulf Coast Day of Interdependence March: Another Gulf Is Possible! 
When: Saturday, August 20th at 10:30 AM 
Where: Lafayette Square, South Maestri St & Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130 
RSVP and more info: www.nonewleases.org/rsvp/

Climate change, the fossil-fuel industry, and systemic racism have disproportionately harmed Gulf Coast communities for generations. The ramifications of devastating storms, heartbreaking spills, and depleted fisheries are real. Right now, communities throughout the region are suffering from unprecedented flooding.

Now is the time for real change. With the Obama administration set to auction millions of Gulf acres to the fossil-fuel industry next Wednesday, we are standing up for our collective future.

Join us in uplifting the interconnected struggles for justice. And let us all declare that Another Gulf Is Possible!

From frontline and indigenous communities to environmental-justice and faith-based advocates, public-health and immigrant-justice workers to fisherfolk, national allies, talented artists and concerned citizens, we all will come together during the historic “Gulf Coast Interdependence Day” march on Saturday, August 20th. I look forward to seeing you there.
