General Info Speaking Guidelines

Dear Concerned Citizens,

Speak Up Now to Save Our Coasts!
Now is your chance to send a clear message that America needs clean energy, not more risky offshore oil drilling.

This Thursday, April 16, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will hold a public hearing in San Francisco to find out how Americans feel about the expanded offshore drilling the oil industry is pushing for. Secretary Salazar needs to see that what Americans really want is clean energy and the jobs that come with it — not more dirty offshore drilling. The most important thing you can do is show up at the hearing and make your voice heard.

Volunteers from Sierra Club and dozens of other groups will gather at 12 noon outside the hearing for a rally that will include live music, sea creature costumes, signs and banners, speakers, and more.

What: Department of Interior Offshore Drilling Hearing
When: Thursday, April 16, 2009; Doors open at 8 AM, event begins at 9 AM;
Where: Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF
Robertson Auditorium
1675 Owens Street
San Francisco, CA

    Hi, I’m the author of “50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco.” There’s some good travel writing that is in the book. Just wanted to extend a greeting.
