Why should you join us? Over the past two months, thousands upon thousands of people around the country have been speaking out against the dominance of oil in our
economy and in our communities. This summer, Hands Across the Sand is going to
build on this historic momentum to ensure that Big Oil hears
our call for NO offshore drilling and YES to cleaner energy!
Join together and say
NO to offshore oil drilling and YES to clean energy and clean
transportation. Sign up to participate in Hands Across the Sand on May 18, 2013.
Hands Across the Sand is an international grassroots event
that brings people together to oppose new offshore oil drilling and to promote a
clean energy future. In Florida, the Sierra Club is once again a sponsor of the event and our participation is a cornerstone of
our campaign to engage our local community in the issue and push for local solutions that will end our dependence on oil. From renewable energy, to improved public
transportation, to electric vehicles -- these are the ways in which, together,
we will challenge the dominance of Big Oil in Florida.
Can you sign up to
organize an event at your local beach or park? The first step is to register your location at www.handsacrossthesand.com/. Your event
will be listed on the website and community members will be able to search and view the event details. The rest in simple! The website provides plenty of resources to help you organize a great event, including posters for printing, logos, T-shirt designs, and most importantly, press materials.
With Congress and the
Florida legislature considering legislation to expand oil and gas development
off our coasts, now is the time to join the grassroots movement to protect our
coastlines from risky drilling practices.
