Description:
Trump recently announced his disastrous plan to hand over all of America's oceans - including the Pacific - to oil companies so they can expand offshore drilling off the California coast for the first time in over 30 years. Join us February 8th to tell the administration that offshore drilling and the oil spills, pipelines and climate chaos that come with it are not welcome off our coast.

Join the Ocean Protectors Coalition of Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples in protesting in Sacramento, the ancestral home of the Nisenan, Maidu, and Mi-wuk/Miwok peoples.

Confirmed event speakers include Assembly members Monique Limon and Al Muratsuchi, State Lands Commission Chair Betty Yee, Supervisor Dan Hamberg, environmental justice activists Marce Gutiérrez-Graudiņš and Marley Reynosa, and event MC Dan Jacobson.

At 1:30 pm we'll meet at the North Steps of the California State Capitol (1100 L St. Sacramento, CA 95814) for a press conference and rally.

At 2:30 pm we'll march to the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria (828 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95814) for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) meeting.

At 3:00 pm we'll enter the meeting and let BOEM know that new drilling is not welcome off our coast or in any of our oceans.
