An important message from Dave Rauschkolb (founder of Hands Across the Sand):

This is the most important week in the battle to keep oil drilling out of Florida’s waters. I am calling on every Floridian who joined hands with us on February 13 and June 26 to join hands once again and do one or all of 3 very important things.

1. Join us this Tuesday, July 20 in Tallahassee for an important gathering to JOIN HANDS (details below.)

2. Take five minutes and call your Legislators at this link. (TALKING POINTS BELOW)

Help us put the decision to drill in our waters firmly where it belongs, in our hands!! Join hands Florida!! Special thanks to the Coalition of organizations (listed below) which has joined hands to bring this event together.

Very best,

Florida, Sierra Club Florida and other organizations for a Hands at the Capitol Event to ask our legislators to let Florida citizens decide the question – Should drilling be banned from our state territorial waters?

Goal: at least one caravan from EVERY legislative district! Please tell all your supportive friends in Florida!

The Legislature has been called into Special Session on Tuesday, July 20 -23 to consider a Joint Resolution that would place the question of drilling in state waters on the ballot for November.
