Sea otter killed by the Exxon Valdez oil spillHelp Stop the Next Exxon Valdez

Twenty two years ago today, the Exxon Valdez carrying oil from Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay field (near the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) ran aground, spilling hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil and wreaking havoc on Alaska’s delicate ecosystems.

It’s time to say “never again” to another cataclysmic oil disaster. Please use the information below to contact your U.S. representative and senators:

If you do not see information for your senators above, please contact the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to be connected.

 and deliver this simple message:

“My name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling from [YOUR CITY] on the anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill to urge my elected officials to reject plans for new drilling off our coasts and in the delicate Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Our wildlife and environment are simply too important and irreplaceable to sacrifice for the sake of our continued dependence on fossil fuels. It’s time to get serious about alternatives to fossil fuels and stop pushing for more dangerous drilling.”

You can expect to either speak to a member of the senator’s staff or to leave a message.
