Say YES 👍🏽to Clean, Renewable Energy!
Say NO 👎 to Nasty Fossil Fuels & Fracking…We take a stand upon on the sand…
We stand together for our priceless oceans and rivers…
We Join Hands in solidarity… from one person to the next… from generation to generation to generation… from one community to the next… from state to state… from nation to nation… from streams to rivers to seas and oceans.
We invite you to join this tradition, now in its 9th year! It is led by
Urban Paradise Guild (UPG) (http://urbanparadiseguild.org),
Surfrider Foundation Miami (www.surfridermiami.org)
& our community partners for this important annual event!
It is 2018, and this movement has never been so important.
Our oceans and ecosystems are under assault like never before.
From the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico, from Atlantic to Pacific, from the Great Plaines to mountaintops and swamps

HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The #JoinHANDS movement started in Florida.
Back on February 13, 2010, a statewide gathering against near and offshore oil drilling occurred in Florida a couple months BEFORE the BP spill disaster.
10,000 Floridians representing 60 towns and cities and over 90 beaches joined hands to protest the efforts by the Florida Legislature and the US Congress to lift the ban on oil drilling in the near and off shores of Florida.
