Hands across the Land is coming to your Beach or City

May 21 at noon

See website: http://www.handsacrossthesand.com/hands-across-the-land/

 Hands Across the Sand / Land, founded in 2010, has grown into an international movement. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.

The world’s climate is changing due to the use of dirty fuels. Lets come together in solidarity and say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy.

Find an event that is already happening in your location. If you do not see an event you can attend, host one yourself.  Fill out the form on the website soon as there are two steps and a waiting period to have it approved. Its easy and the organizers provide all you need to make it successful! If you missed this year, be ready for next year!! UU congregations: Find the sponsor and plan together for the event.
