Ocean View Hands Across the Sand!

May 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Get ready for the 10th Annual Hands Across the Sand! On Saturday, May 18, 2019, the world will join hands to show our opposition to offshore drilling and look ahead to a clean energy future. We will have information, speakers, and fun as we gather in opposition to drilling off of our coast!

In the wake of the new OCS Oil and Gas Leasing program which puts the threat of offshore drilling back on the table, it is a critical time for Virginians to come together and unite against fossil fuel infrastructure. The health and success of our coast demand that we say “No” to drilling off of our coast.

History of Hands Across the Sand:
Hands Across the Sand, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year.

Nine years later, as millions begin to understand that President Trump’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 dangerous and dirty fuels.
