We Got We, Not BP Podcast Series

WE GOT WE

Another Gulf Is Possible live recorded podcast 5 episode series “We Got We, Not BP” was sparked by observing 10 years of ongoing impacts from the BP oil disaster. Featuring voices of Gulf South climate and environmental justice leaders reflecting in the midst a pandemic and an uprising.

We’ve bailed out the corporations way too long. From BP to COVID-19, mutual aid and solidarity is how we survive and thrive.
