You’re invited to join The Business Alliance for Protecting the Pacific Coast (BAPPC) for an informational and social gathering at Patagonia Santa Monica on February 12 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Businesses will hear from lead campaign organizers from Oceana and Surfrider Foundation on the Federal Administration’s plans to expand offshore oil drilling in the Pacific and the risk this poses to our local coastal economy. Existing BAPPC members will have an opportunity to network amongst themselves, and new businesses are welcome to attend and learn more about how to join the Business Alliance.
The Business Alliance for Protecting the Pacific Coast is the leading business voice opposing new and expanded oil and gas development off the Pacific Coast because of the unacceptable and unnecessary risk it poses to our businesses and the lifestyles of our customers and employees. BAPPC aims to ensure the long-term health and vitality of our ocean ecosystems, coastal businesses, communities, and clean energy future. As of today, over 2,300 businesses belong to BAPPC.
