Members of Congress are attempting to block implementation of the National Ocean Policy – a common-sense approach designed to protect important marine habitat, help keep our nation's beaches clean and foster emerging industries and jobs – including offshore wind power.
Help us beat this baseless and politically motivated attack on our ocean by calling your member of Congress.
Step 1: Find your Representative’s direct number: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ or call the switchboard and ask to be connected to your Congressperson's office: 202-225-3121
Step 2: Tell him or her the following:
Hi, my name is [fill in your name here]. I am a constituent of yours, and I am concerned about our ocean. The National Ocean Policy is important to me and I feel it should be put into place.
The National Ocean Policy is about making smart choices for a healthier ocean – which, in turn, saves money, time and jobs. The policy provides guidance in making decisions that will protect the ocean, waterways and coastlines – all of which are a source of income, tourism and food for the neighboring communities and states.
As your constituent, I ask you to vote against any efforts to block the National Ocean Policy.
Step 3: Spread the word! Once you've contacted your member of Congress, please share this information with your friends and family and ask them to take action in support of the National Ocean Policy.
I just asked my Representative to support the National Ocean Policy, and I hope you will too. This policy will ensure smart choices for a healthier ocean – which, in turn, saves money, time and jobs.All active news articles
