Hands Across the Sand 2019  
Hands Across The Sand is held annually in Florida and on beaches, waterways and land all around the world. The event is intended to bring awareness about the dangers inherent in securing and burning dirty fuels and to champion a new era of clean energy for a sustainable planet for our children and theirs.

“Our planet depends on our continued activism in order to ensure it will be here for future generations.” Dede Shelton, Executive Director of Hands Across the Sand.

Hands Across the Sand was founded in 2010 by restaurateur, Dave Rauschkolb of Seaside, Florida. The grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People around the world, came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and standing against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.

The mission of Hands Across the Sand is to bring together individuals and organizations to promote a clean energy future across the world and end our dependence on dirty fuels. It is our goal to gather thousands of Americans and global citizens at beaches and cities to draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand,,, human lines in the sand against fossil fuels that threaten our future.

Nine years later, we invite activists to call for our national and state leaders to reject offshore drilling in Florida — and instead accelerate the shift to clean, renewable energy.
