Gulf Coast Advocates Meet with Clinton Global Initiative Task Force

On December 1, 2010 Alliance Institute and other organizations working on Gulf Coast recovery met with a Senior Associate for the Clinton Global Initiative's Environment and Energy Task Force.  A part of President Clinton's work world-wide, the task force is looking at America's gulf coast following the 2005 hurricane season and the BP oil drilling disaster. 

One of the few projects focused on the United States this was a unique opportunity to help provide the voice of those most impacted by the disasters.  During the meeting, we discussed coastal restoration, the need for greater access to health care, continued monitoring, as well as sustainable recovery and community oversight during all of these processes.

We discussed the opportunity for us to share our concerns and suggest our solutions to the full body of the task force over the coming months.  We also talked about the possibility of organizations from the region participating as partners in 2011, when they once again open the doors for applications.  This marks an important step towards getting the voice of the gulf heard by key decision makers in both government and business.  Also in attendance were Gulf Coast Fund for Community Renewal and Ecological Health, Gulf Restoration Network, Community Foundation of South Alabama, Bridge the Gulf, and Louisiana BayouKeepers.
