Failure to enact policies that protect the environment and long term climate denial have created the current disaster in Tampa Bay. The Tampa Bay community is demanding that our state leaders declare the current Red Tide crisis a state of emergency. Community
members, business leaders & non-profit groups will walk together this Saturday at Tampa Bay’s prestigious waterfront park system alongside literal tons of dead sea life. This rally highlights the need for immediate action for both short term and long term protection of our vital waterways. Join us.
***This rally highlights the dire need for meaningful action by Governor DeSantis, the Florida Legislature, and multiple state and regional agencies.***
Protection of our vital waterways has too long been placed on the backburner. Immediate action and long term initiatives must be enacted NOW. Anything less is committing Tampa Bay to collapse.
We will walk from the St. Pete Pier, 600 2nd Ave. NE, to North Shore volleyball courts – along one of North America’s largest waterfront park systems.
Our Demands as a community:
1. Make polluters pay
2. Declare a state of emergency in Tampa Bay
3. Create a plan for Piney Point closure
4. Mandate recommendations from local experts
5. Stop phosphate mining in Florida
6. Update Florida’s ancient infrastructure
7. Set statewide clean energy transition targets
