What would happen if the ocean could speak for itself? Ocean Filibuster invites us to explore the intimate and critical relationship between humankind and the ocean, and reflect on our place within this connection. Inspired by the show’s themes of ocean advocacy, the A.R.T. has partnered with several organizations that are leaders in climate advocacy, conservation, and sustainability. Below you can learn more about the work of our partners and how you can get involved in the fight for climate justice.
