Defend the Coast

 

Defend the CoastWe are living in a time when rising seas are pushing our communities out of their homes and away from the places they know and love.

The Gulf is facing sea level rise, coastal wetland loss and ongoing environmental disasters fueled by the oil and gas industry. But we will no longer let the Gulf be treated as sacrifice zone.

Together, let’s build a movement of people to defend our coast – our homes, our culture, our food and our music! Take action to tell state and federal leaders to defend the coast.

Whether it’s cutting canals through our wetlands or spilling oil across our coast, the oil and gas industry is responsible for damaging our communities and coast. We are calling for the oil and gas industry to pay for the injuries they have caused. Now is the time for our region to transition away from destructive industry and to a clean energy economy.

Join us in calling on federal and state leaders to defend the coast. We need them to support curbing climate change emissions, investing in coastal restoration and holding the oil and gas industry accountable.

Now is the time to say enough is enough – take action now to defend our coast!
