Hands Across the Sand & Land, Triangle NC: Say Yes to Clean Energy!

May 16, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us Saturday, May 16, at 11:30 AM at Seaforth Recreation Area at Jordan Lake as our community gathers to call on local, state, and federal leaders to protect our communities by rejecting offshore oil drilling, fracking, coal ash, and more — and instead accelerate the shift to clean, renewable energy like offshore wind and solar power. Following the gathering there will be a BYO picnic, birdwatching, kayaking, and community building.
Now is the time to join hands and transition our energy policy away from our dependence on fossil fuels and into the light of clean energy and renewables! We hope you, your family, and your congregation will come out and join us for this special opportunity to put our “faith into action!”
This is part of the national demonstration, “Hands Across the Sand”, and is co-sponsored by NCIPL and the Capital City group of the NC Sierra Club.
