Tell Congress: Protect Our Coasts From Offshore Drilling

Offshore oil platform

President Trump has signed an executive order to undo permanent protections in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans and allow even more drilling in the Pacific and Gulf of Mexico -- a dangerous decision that threatens our environment and coastal communities' health and economic well-being. From Exxon Valdez to Deepwater Horizon, repeated disasters have shown that there's simply no safe way to drill.

That's why we need Congress to resist Trump and his reckless attacks on our oceans now. But for them to stand up to the president, they need to hear that there's strong support from people like you to keep our oceans and coasts oil free.

Using the form on this page, please call your members in Congress and tell them to oppose any efforts to expand offshore drilling.

Here's a sample call script, which you can paraphrase into your own words:

Hi, my name is _____, and I'm from [City, State]. I'm calling to urge you to protect our coasts and climate by opposing any and all efforts to expand offshore oil and gas drilling in our oceans. Thank you.

Please take action by June 9, 2017.
