Join Hands Across the Sand to Take a Stand against Big Oil Sat, June 25

Sierra Club - Explore, enjoy and protect the planet

Dear Friend,
Last year, people across the globe joined together at over 900 events in 39 countries to call for an end to offshore drilling in the wake of the BP oil disaster.

Will you help us make this year's event even bigger?

Sign up to attend a Hands Across the Sand event on Saturday, June 25th.

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.

RSVP: Find an event near you:
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.

Help us move beyond oil. Sign up for Hands Across the Sand on June 25th.

Thanks for all that you do to protect the environment,
