WASHINGTON - On Wednesday, a coalition of environmental organizations and community leaders will deliver over 2 million petitions calling on President Obama to take new offshore drilling off the table. The Obama Administration is expected to update its “five-year plan” for offshore oil and gas drilling in the coming weeks. Climate activists and community groups see new offshore drilling as a threat to our communities, our oceans, and our climate.

This 2pm EST event is being planned by a huge swath of the environmental community, and headlined by grassroots leaders from coastal communities.
