Hands Across the Sand, a coalition of organizations, activists and citizens around the world that brings the message of clean oceans to local and world leaders, will hold an event at 3105 Ocean Front Walk, Mission Beach from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 19.

Founded in 2010, Hands Across the Sand grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and to stand against the impacts of other forms of extreme energy.

Eight years later, there’s a rising tide of grassroots activism demanding that the U.S. and the world ends the expansion of offshore oil drilling. For more information, visit handsacrossthesand.org or the local group’s Facebook page, Hands Across the Sand – Mission Bay.
