Stop by the Citizen Public Hearing first to voice your opinion and get the facts before stopping by BOEM's Public Meeting to display your opposition with signage and submit your comments online if you have not already done so. There will be an Advocacy Room, coordinated by COA, for a press conference and citizen hearing and will be transcribing testimonies for the public record.

BRING A SIGN TO DISPLAY YOUR OPPOSITION! Trump recently announced his disastrous plan to hand over all of America’s oceans to oil companies so they can expand offshore drilling.
Join us February 14th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Hamilton to tell the administration that offshore drilling is not welcome off our coast.
Offshore drilling is a nightmare for people and the planet. Let’s show Trump and his oil cronies what resistance looks like.
BOEM is not holding official Public Hearings but instead will be hosting Public Meetings across the country. Unlike Public Hearings, these 'listening sessions" will not allow for spoken public testimony and will merely provide lap tops where comments can be submitted online. That is why Clean Ocean Action, along with many other NJ groups including NY/NJ Baykeeper, NJ Sierra Club, Surfrider: Jersey Shore Chapter, American Littoral Society, Surfrider South Jersey, and Clean Water Action are hosting a moderated Public Hearing at the same time and location of BOEM's NJ Public Meeting.
