Dear Senator: Vanderbilt Stands with the Gulf
This blog was written by Michael S. Diamond, a student at Vanderbilt University
For the second anniversary of the Gulf Oil Spill, Vanderbilt Students Promoting Environmental Awareness and Responsibility (SPEAR) asked students to stand with the Gulf by wearing black and also asked Senator Bob Corker to stand with the Gulf by voting to end subsidies for the oil industry. Students made and signed a letter to Senator Corker, who is up for reelection this Fall, and then hand-delivered it to his West End office.
Check out more pictures of their petition: It reads, "Dear Senator Corker, Remember the Gulf Spill and End Oil Subsidies. Love, the Earth, and also the students and faculty of Vanderbilt".
