Hands Across The Sand is a global grassroots event that champions clean energy solutions to our filthy fuels problem. On May 17, 2014, people around the world will join hands at noon local time to say NO to offshore drilling, hydraulic fracking, XL pipeline, tar sands mining, coal fired power plants and mountaintop removal mining and YES to clean energy.
The backbone of our movement is local organizers and individuals who plan events in their communities and sponsors who support and amplify our message. Join hands and get involved!

We will be west of Tampa (leave Tampa from Gandy Blvd) and head west towards St. Pete. Once you are over the Gandy Bridge you will be on a causeway leading into St. Pete. There will be a sandy beach area to your left (south side of bridge and causeway). Make a left turn across the road and into the sand and look for the cars, people and signs.
From St. Pete, you will head east towards Tampa from Gandy Blvd. Look for the cars, people and signs to your right on the beach area and turn in quickly. If you get on the bridge to Tampa, you have gone too far and you will need to cross over to Tampa before you can turn around.
