Public Meeting about Offshore Drilling
Landmark Catering & Convention Center, 47 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma
Following the theme of sacrificing the public’s favorite natural areas for the benefit of oil and gas companies, the Trump administration has just announced plans to expand offshore drilling in the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and Arctic Oceans. This drastic proposal opens more than 90 percent of the Outer Continental Shelf to new drilling and puts our nation’s coastal communities, beaches, surf breaks, and marine ecosystems at risk of a catastrophic oil spill. We will be organizing events before and the day of the forum to protest the administration’s plan to expand offshore drilling.
