Arctic Refuge Letter Writing
Sierra Club Alaska Chapter – Our senators and representatives to the Federal Government are telling decision makers in Washington DC that most Alaskan's are in favor of oil and gas exploration, even in currently protected areas such as the Arctic Refuge. They are openly saying this to leaders of the lower 48 states to pass the legislation of opening the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain for drilling. Polls have shown that this is not true. In order to raise the true voices of Alaskans, we will write a letter together to key decision makers, discussing why we believe that opening the Arctic Refuge for drilling is not a good idea, and send it with our photo. Please join us on Monday 11/20 at 6 pm on the Second floor of the Alaska Center for the discussion and letter writing. Light refreshment will be provided.
