Hands Across the Sand started in Florida, when over 10,000 people joined hands on over 90 beaches to protest efforts to lift the ban on drilling off their coasts. Since then it has grown to become an international movement calling on President Obama and world leaders to adopt policies encouraging the growth of clean and renewable energy sources in place of oil and coal.1
What: Join tens of thousands of citizens as we draw human lines in the sand against the threat dirty fuels and offshore oil drilling pose to our families and our planet.
When: June 25th at noon for 15 minutes.
Where: Your favorite beach, lake shore or riverfront.
The timing of this year's event couldn't be more critical. As gas prices go up through the summer, the pressure to expand drilling mounts. Drilling off our coasts is not only dangerous, but it will have no impact on the price of gas.
But there is an alternative. It's time to invest in clean, renewable alternatives, cleaner cars, and transportation options that will end our addiction to oil once and for all.
