Join us at the Noel Wien Public Library to submit public testimony for our shared opposition to the expansion of offshore drilling in Alaskan's oceans. The current offshore drilling proposal will continue Alaska on an unsustainable economic and ecologic path if developed. We must raise our voices to ensure this exploration and development does not occur in our waters. There will be a stenographer present to take down your written or spoken comments.

And it is engaged for the ultimate purpose of overturning the colonial structure & realizing Indigenous liberation. Training with Native Movement

President Trump’s Interior Department has proposed opening essentially the entirety of the U.S. continental shelf waters for oil & gas exploration, including almost all of Alaska’s coasts. This represents an unprecedented threat to coastal communities and Indigenous livelihoods, the environments they depend on, and our global climate as we far exceed safe levels of fossil fuel use.
