Protect God's Oceans & Coastline Communities

During his first year in office, President Trump signed an executive order aimed at expanding offshore oil and gas exploration and drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. As stewards of God's creation, we join with state and business leaders in raising profound concern for the health, ecology, and economies of coastal communities. If you a a religious leader, please scroll down to sign the petition.

(If you are a lay person, please urge your religious leader(s) to sign.)
