May 19, Hands Across The Sand
TOGETHER WE STAND! TOGETHER WE FIGHT! TOGETHER WE SURF! Join Surfrider LA and StokeShare for a special event. We’re combining Hands Across the Sand – a national day of protest against offshore oil drilling, with StokeShare’s One Watershed program introducing at-risk youth to surfing. WE NEED YOUR HELP for the kids event. If you have boards/wetsuits to loan or want to help kids in the water, let us know! With the Trump administration’s plan to open 90% of our federal waters to oil and gas development we need to keep the pressure on and let our elected officials know that we WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY NEW LEASES for offshore oil expansion in the United States. Come to the beach in Santa Monica at Bay Street and join hands with your community and help us send a message to Congress.
