How to
Join Hands
on May 19, 2018

Go to an event location near you at 11 AM, in your time zone, for one hour, rain or shine.
Join hands for 15 minutes at 12:00 PM, in your time zone, forming lines in the sand, or on the land, against dirty fuels. Say yes to clean energy and renewables.
Leave only your footprints. In addition, consider getting involved in a local organization that supports clean energy.

Event Day Tips

  1. Use only approved locations. This includes beach access and parking, plus parks and recreational areas.
  2. Create a long line, or as many lines as you wish.
  3. Be courteous and respectful to those who disagree with your view.
  4. Please steer clear of bird nesting areas (refer to Audubon’s recommendations).

    If at beach, stay away from sea turtle nesting areas (visit Sea Turtle Oversight Protection for more information).

    In addition, respect any flora and fauna (plants and animals) for your particular region.
  5. Leave nothing but footprints...and enjoy yourself!
