Join us for Hands Across the Sand May 18th



On May 18, 2013 Hands Across the Sand is coming to your local beach or park. 

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.
