Hands Across the Sand
In June of 2010, people joined hands along beaches and inland waterways around the world to show their passion for protecting our planet from the devastating effects of offshore drilling, fracking and the burning of fossil fuels. People in all 50 states in the US and in 42 other countries stood in solidarity to advocate for ocean protection and a clean energy future!
Andrea produced the Hands Across the Sand gathering pictured here at Stinson Beach, CA. It was a wonderful event with inspiring speakers and musicians.
Author, media critic, antiwar and peace activist, Norman Solomon, who is co-founder of RootsAction.org and founding director of the Institute for Public Accuracy was one of the featured speakers. Singer, songwriter, peace activist, and recording artist, Betsy Rose, led everyone in a beautiful sing-along as we joined hands across the sand by water’s edge.
Hands Across the Sand gatherings continue to be held, each year, worldwide.
