#ProtectThePacific

We need YOUR help!

On January 4th, Donald Trump proposed to open up the entire U.S. Outer Continental Shelf to new offshore oil and gas drilling.  If approved, the proposal would become the largest expansion of oil and gas drilling leases in U.S. History and the first off the coast of California since 1984.  We cannot let this happen. We will not let this happen.

How can YOU help?

Join me, Congressman Ted Lieu, Senator Ben Allen, Assemblymember Laura Friedman, local leaders and numerous leading environmental organizations at a public rally this Saturday to protest this reckless and relentless assault on our coast by the Trump administration.  At this rally, you will have a chance to hear directly from opposition leaders and learn how you can help defeat this proposal.

Why is this IMPORTANT?

On Thursday, February 8, the federal Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) will be taking public comment at their only scheduled hearing in California. We need you to take action and submit your testimony here. We are all too familiar with the horrors of past oil spills: 3 million gallons in Santa Barbara in 1969, 10.8 million gallons in Alaska in 1989, and 210 million gallons in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.  California's coast- the pristine, rugged shores of Northern California to the scenic Southern California beaches- all are at risk unless our collective voice is heard.
