Event Details

Hands Across the Sand in Bradley Beach!

Coasts around the country are being threatened by Big Oil’s need to drill - from Alaska to the Atlantic. We may not have Big Oil’s wallets, but we do have people power! Join The New Jersey Sierra Club, The Jersey Shore Chapter of The Surfrider Foundation, and Alaska Wilderness League for Hands Across the Sand on Saturday, May 17th in Bradley Beach! This is your chance to be heard by letting the world know that we DO NOT want seismic testing, offshore drilling, or LNG ports off our coasts!

RSVP TODAY for the best event all year where you can stand up against offshore drilling, unwind with FREE yoga, and enjoy all Bradley Beach has to offer!

Right now, our coast is being threatened by seismic airguns, which are loud thunderous blasts of pressurized air to look for oil and gas deposits.Seismic airgun testing will negatively impact marine wildlife and coastal ecosystems potentially killing or injuring 138,000 whales and dolphins. More alarming is that seismic testing is the first major step toward offshore drilling. Also the liquefied natural gas proposal, Port Ambrose, off the coast of Long Branch has come back from the dead.

On May 17th join others around the world in taking a stand against fossil fuels!

Around the world people and ecosystems are being threatened by climate change. We keep seeing the same thing - drill, spill, and repeat. These dirtyfossil fuels need to stay in the ground if we want a livable planet for future generations. The more people that join hands the bigger the message!

Join us in telling President Obama, Governor Christie, and the world – NO MORE DIRTY FOSSIL FUELS! WE WANT RENEWABLE ENERY & ENERGY EFFIENCY & WE WANT IT NOW!

Afterwards, at 1PM unwind with a FREE beach yoga session hosted by a local yoga instructor.
