Move Beyond Oil on Thursday, May 16 7pm at First Unity Church in St Petersburg

Engage in a conversation on the current state of the gulf and how we all can move beyond oil. Join us as we come together to celebrate past Hands Across the Sands, when people all over the world joined hands to support and protect their favorite beaches. Three years after the BP Gulf Oil Spill - how is the gulf? How can we here in Tampa Bay move beyond oil? Engage in the conversation on Thursday, May 16 at 7pm - First Unity Church in St Petersburg (460 46th Avenue North, St Pete) and then join us for the local "Hands Across the Sand" gathering in solidarity with events around the globe to raise awareness about the dangers of dirty fuels and call on leaders to end our oil dependence and move America into a clean energy future. At noon, participants will join hands for 15 minutes to form a line along the beach, near rivers, in parks and on capitol steps. FREE
