Our addiction to oil has come at a high cost to our communities and environment at home and abroad. As a nation we are at crossroads-we can either continue our addiction with offshore drilling or invest in a future built on clean, safe energy, healthy communities and a vibrant environment. California has a long history of trailblazing the way for environmental and social issues and has opportunity to be a national and international leader in creating a future without offshore drilling.

Cost of Oil: Voices from the Arctic, a movie produced independently by Stone Soup Productions, outlines the effects of offshore oil production on Alaska Native communities. We'll also be screening Big Oil's Last Day. Shot in the style of The Office meets Thank You for Smoking, Big Oil’s Last Day highlights the irony of our ongoing addiction to oil. Join us for a screening of the films and a conversation with leaders in the movement to stop offshore drilling and promote clean, safe energy at home and abroad.

This event is cosponsored by Bay Localize, Crude Accountability, Environmental Action Committee of West Marin, Greenpeace , Santa Monica Baykeeper, Save Our Shores, and Sierra Club's Alaska Task Force.
