As the Trump administration announced plans to open nearly all U.S. waters to offshore drilling, people across the country are standing up. This plan opens the floodgates to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling, threatening coastal economies that rely on clean and healthy oceans. This radical offshore drilling free-for-all is a clear example of politics over people, ignoring widespread local and state opposition.
Join us for Shore Stories, six short films that highlight the grassroots resistance taking place across the US, as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration – including the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.
The Stories are told by a broad range of people who love the coast and stand together in opposition to drilling–surfers, fishermen, scientists, environmentalists, business owners, and coastal residents. After the films we’ll discuss the proposal and how you can get involved in resisting these disastrous plans.
