Jungle Jenny participates in the largest gathering of people against offshore oil drilling in the history of the world! People united at over 800 sites around the globe to say NO to offshore oil drilling and YES to alternative energies. Here we see moments from both the press conference and the event itself. Surely President Obama heard the positive message from these masses!

Jungle Jenny speaks to Stefanie Sekich-Quinn (Surfrider Foundation), Kwazi Nkrumah (KPFK Community Advisory Board Chairman), Callie Hurd (Field Rep for Senator Fran Pavley), Marshall Wright (Environment California), Liz Crosson (Santa Monica BayKeeper) and more!

The Hands Across the Sand mission is:
1. To raise awareness about the devastating effects oil drilling could have on our coastal economies and environment.
2. To organize a national coastal movement to protest lifting the bans on near and offshore oil drilling. These protests will bring thousands of Americaâ€™s citizens to our beaches and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against oil drilling in our waters. Event dates will be announced.
3. To convince our State Legislators, Governors, Congress and President Obama to adopt policies encouraging clean and renewable energy sources. Create legislation that creates tax incentives to encourage clean energy industries to bring business and jobs to our coastal states. Create legislation that gives Americans tax incentives to adopt inâ€“home solar technology.
