If you're not in the area, the most important thing right now is to help make sure this never happens again. Take action now to tell Congress that pending climate legislation must not contain any provisions that would expand offshore drilling and continue our dependence on fossil fuels.
There are also a few toolkits that you can use to take action in your own community. These toolkits will guide you through how to write a letter to the editor of your local paper, and how to hold a rally and tell Congress that its time to wake up and ban new offshore drilling. The third is some basic messaging and info that you can have at your disposal.

We CAN prevent the next oil spill if we speak up loud enough to make President Obama and Congress listen. But it will take all of us speaking out together.
