July 30th will mark the 100th day of the BP Horizon Disaster. For those most impacted across the Gulf Coast, conditions continue to change as the full range of impacts makes landfall upon coastal and inland communities.
The Equity and Inclusion Campaign, a coalition of community and faith-based organizations throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, invites you to hear firsthand reports, engage in dialogue, and uplift legislative solutions to meet the needs of the Gulf Coast.
