Crowds will join hands forming lines across beaches, parks and state capitol steps in synchronized “Hands Across the Sand/Land” demonstrations. This includes 87 synchronized events across 15 states and five countries to raise awareness about the dangers of dirty fuels and the need to accelerate the transition to available, affordable clean energy solutions. The show of opposition this year comes at a time when the Trump administration is facing significant legal hurdles in its moves to expand offshore drilling. The administration made a preliminary proposal last year to expand offshore drilling to nearly all of America’s coastlines, and has issued a first set of permits for oil and gas exploration along the Atlantic coast.
