On May 17, join communities around the country under the banner of Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land to ask the President and local officials to reject the use of dirty fuels like the Keystone XL pipeline and to reject expanding near shore and offshore drilling, hydraulic fracturing and all other dirty fuel projects that threaten our communities and destabilize our climate.
Hands Across the Sand / Land, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.
Four years later, as millions begin to understand that President Obama’s Climate Action Plan falls short if it fails to address keeping dirty fuels in the ground, there’s a rising tide of grassroots activism demanding that we choose a clean energy future over the dangerous and dirty fuels of the 20th century.
The coalition of organizations, activists and citizens around the world bring the message of clean energy to local and world leaders.
We invite activists to organize hundreds of events and Join Hands creating a powerful image to send to our elected officials.
We invite activists to call for the President to reject KXL and other tar sands pipelines and call on local and state leaders to protect our communities by rejecting projects that expand the extraction and use of fossil fuels — and instead accelerate the shift to clean, renewable energy.
In addition, these events will highlight urgent national and regional issues including:
And calling attention to the impact of climate disruption such as rising sea levels, super storms, drought, forest fires, flooding and ocean acidification.
It’s easy to do:
We provide everything you need to create a successful experience.
Whether it’s a group of 2 or 10,000 — it doesn’t matter.
Let’s stand together and “Say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy.”
An Opportunity of National and Global Importance
