Time is Running Out to Prevent Another Oil Spill Disaster

Despite the catastrophic impacts of the BP oil drilling disaster, the Senate has so far failed to act to prevent the next awful oil disaster.

But time is running out for Congress to take action before they adjourn for the year.

Join with the Alliance Institute and support the people of the Gulf Coast by urging Congress to equally value communities, the environment and economic welfare.

Send a letter today to your Senator today and tell them to vote YES for the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act (S3663).

Keeping Gulf Coast Recovery on the Front Burner

On October 12, 2010 Alliance Institute met in Washington, DC with representatives from the Religious Action Center, the Jewish Council on Public Affairs, the Catholic Social Justice Lobby-NETWORK, Oxfam and others to discuss moving forward on Gulf Coast Recovery.  With the BP oil drilling disaster fading from the national media and many areas still reeling from the 2005 hurricane season, many organizations across the region and nationally are looking at opportunities to impact the lame duck Congress as well as the incoming Congress.

Three issues that are being focused on are the need for community oversight in the recovery, a need for infrastructure and coastal restoration jobs for citizens of the region, and an emphasis on developing a sustainable and green economy as part of the recovery process.  Alliance Institute and others maintain that the Gulf Coast can be looked at as a pilot program for an economic recovery via these issues.
