As the BP Horizon Deepwater Disaster unfolds along the Gulf of Mexico, coastal families and communities have been the first to feel the economic, social and environmental impacts.
The Equity and Inclusion Campaign and Oxfam America invite you to hear reports from advocates in coastal communities who will share their on-the-ground experiences and challenges in their communities, as well as proposed legislative solutions.
