Welcome to Children of the Spills

Children of the Spills is an oral history project with young people affected by the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Alaska and with children and teens impacted by the BP/Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill along the Gulf of Mexico.  By empowering young people in “oiled communities” to share their memories, stories, and childhood artwork, this project strives to both broaden the public understanding of the long-term affects of oil spills and to assist communities as they work to protect and support their children after an oil spill.
