A message from Grace Carlson, APR, LEED GA:

We are expecting nearly 200 people at tonight’s vigil.  I know we can mobilize to make this the largest BP Gulf Disaster vigil in Florida.  If you have not already rsvp’d, please go to the link below and register.  Please forward this to your friends & network.  I am getting feedback that this is a “button pusher” for a lot of folks.  Everyone wants to do something, but knowing the best thing to do is hard right now.  THIS is going to be a GIANT step in the right direction.  Please come out and show your support.

I am tired of feeling frustrated and helpless by the senseless destruction that is occurring in our beautiful Gulf of Mexico. So I’m ready to do something about it. I am organizing a vigil this Tuesday night at City Island so others who share my concern can come together and demand action from Tallahassee and Washington.  Tuesday will mark the 50th day since the BP oil rig explosion and ceaseless pollution of crude oil into the Gulf waters.  Even as we are still battling against time to end this assault against our natural environment, our government leaders should be using this moment to change our nation’s direction & dependency on fossil fuel.  Won’t you join us?

The vigil will be held on Tuesday, June 8 at 7 pm

City Island, Ken Thompson Parkway, Sarasota
