*THIS BUS WILL STOP IN NORFOLK and NEWPORT NEWS*
On May 15th, grassroots leaders and climate activists will rally in Washington DC and call on President Obama to stop all new offshore drilling in the Arctic, Atlantic and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Over the next few months, the Obama administration will be working on their 5 year offshore drilling plan. A draft of the plan was released in March, and removed plans to expand drilling off the Atlantic seaboard. The current version of this plan still allows drilling in the Arctic and off the Gulf Coast. And that’s still unacceptable.
We’re calling on President Obama to say no to all new offshore drilling. That includes zero new drilling in the Arctic and zero new drilling off the Gulf Coast.
Join us in Washington D.C on May 15!
