Ocean Climate Action Capitol Hill Lobby Day April 14, 2021
April 14, 2021 All day
In what is expected to be the largest ocean lobby in U.S. history, the Ocean Climate Action Plan (OCAP) coalition, with key supporters including Climate Envoy John Kerry, Climate Activist and Actor Jane Fonda, founder of the environmental justice movement Dr. Robert Bullard, Indigenous groups, industry and maritime leaders, environmentalists, social justice activists and youth will promote job-generating ocean solutions to the climate crisis, over two days of meetings, April 13th and 14th, 2021.
On Tuesday, April 13th, small group meetings with leaders of the new administration and federal agencies are being organized. Tuesday is “by invitation only.” There will be an opening/welcome event that is open to all. If you have an area of expertise or are a young person with a particular focus, please indicate that on the sign up form.
On Wednesday, April 14th, public participation is encouraged—ALL HANDS ON DECK! When you sign up, you’ll be assigned to a state team, and receive updates on the schedule and activities planned by your State Lead. Each state team will have a dedicated “Zoom Room” and participants will be sent the Zoom link and all other information needed to participate. Your presence in the Zoom Room will show how many people care about climate change and the ocean’s connection to solutions.
Please join and send a message to Members of Congress that the job-creating Ocean Climate Action Plan and our oceans, coasts, rivers and Great Lakes must be not be ignored as we move toward a more sustainable and just future!
