Gulf Restoration Network wrote -
All along the Gulf Coast, communities, citizens, and non-profit organizations are uniting to address the crisis and restore our Gulf. We are the Gulf Future Coalition: a diverse group representing fishermen, faith leaders, environmentalists, clean-up workers, tribal members and community residents who live, work, and play on the Gulf Coast. We come from culturally, geographically and racially diverse communities in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Texas who have come together to share common purpose in the aftermath of the 2010 BP Oil Disaster.
This winter our coalition is hosting a series of Gulf Future Salons, featuring documentary film, participatory theater, digital storytelling, interactive workshops and collective vision mural making in each Gulf Coast state. Come springtime, we will gather as an entire region to strategize around the resulting community tapestry.
We need your help to make the Gulf Future Salons a reality.
Dear friends and family, support us to elevate the voice and vision of the most impacted frontline Gulf Coast communities, through creativity and culture, in the face of this unprecedented ecological disaster.
This holiday season, please help us give the Gulf a future.
