The Atlanta Chapter will be organizing a trip to Florida to help Hands Across The Sand oppose oil drilling that may happen as close as 3 to 10 miles off the Florida coast. This movement will be made up of people from all walks of life and will cross political affiliations. This is not about politics; it is about protecting the Florida shoreline and our way of life. Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting our waterways and beaches from the devastating effects of oil drilling.

On February 13, 2010 at Noon Central Time, thousands of citizens will convene on the Florida beaches and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against near shore oil drilling in our waters.

Please email info@surfrideratlanta.org if you are interested in attending or want additional details. We are planning to camp, surf, paddleboard and have a good time.
