Steidle-logo-final

On May 20th, we will be having a protest with speakers and locking hands to stand up against Trump and his oil drilling cronies from threatening our coasts. This is one of hundreds of synchronized events globally to raise awareness about the dangers of dirty fuels and the need to speed the transition to available, affordable clean energy solutions. We must stand up for offshore wind over offshore drilling and speak out against any attacks by the Trump Administration!

“We’re coming out and standing together to protect our oceans from offshore drilling. We’ll be drawing a line in the sand to say NO to Trump’s plans to drill off our coasts and threaten our environment and economy. We must continue to protect our coasts by stopping dangerous oil drilling and seismic testing. Drilling for oil poisons our oceans and threatens our entire economy from fishing to tourism. We must explore new technologies for wind and wave power and remove obstacles that stand in the way of clean energy. We should be focusing on promoting safe and renewable energy like wind power and not opening up the Atlantic to drilling,” said Jeff Tittel, Director of the New Jersey Sierra Club.“Together we are joining Hands Across the Sand to stand up for protecting our coasts and say NO to offshore drilling!

WHO: New Jersey Sierra Club, Surfrider Foundation: Jersey Shore Chapter, Bradley Beach Mayor Gary Engelstad, and more speakers and guests TBA

WHAT: Hands Across the Sand is an annual international grassroots event designed to demonstrate local opposition to the exploration for and transport of dirty fossil fuels.

WHEN: Saturday, May 20th 11am to 1 pm. We will be joining hands at noon on the beach.
