Harmony for Health Festival at Pirates Cove in Elberta, Alabama, April 15-17

The UnityfortheGulf.org concert House of Blues, NEW ORLEANS, LA, April 20

Marking the anniversary of the BP Oil Spill with a series of concerts & events to continue raising awareness of ongoing health issues and to pay for desperately needed medical care for victims of the oil spill though medical clinics for humans including vision and dental, and veterinary services for animals.  Due in part due to a lack of media attention, but owing more to an aggressive campaign by BP to ensure that medical providers and government officials do not acknowledge the problem, the vast majority of the American public is unaware the true extent of health impacts on people and animals along the effected regions of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida.

A special sneak trailer of the upcoming film The Big Fix directed by Josh Tickell from GreenPlanet Productions will be screened and a major international media effort to address industry spin in media Counterspin unveiled.

There will be celebrity speakers, a short PSA film presentation directed by Trey Fanjoy, and people from across the Gulf Coast impacted by the spill. The Sierra Club, the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), WWOZ New Orleans, and Stuart Smith are also sponsoring the event. The evening will be broadcast live.

All the proceeds will be go to The Oil Spill Memorial Fund administered by the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation and the Gulf Coast Fund. The fund will benefit Gulf Coast grass-roots NGO’s to pay for desperately needed medical care for victims of the oil spill though medical clinics for humans including vision and dental, and veterinary services for animals with 2 full-service clinics scheduled to be operational in May; one in Louisiana and one in Alabama. Due in part due to a lack of media attention, but owing more to an aggressive campaign by BP to ensure that medical providers and government officials do not acknowledge the problem, the vast majority of the American public is unaware the true extent of health impacts on people and animals along the effected regions of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida.

This is a one-off event as there will not be another opportunity to take advantage of the attention resulting from the one year anniversary/memorial of the largest environmental disaster in our nation’s history which took the lives of eleven men and caused unprecedented devastation to the Gulf Coast.
