Hands Across the Sands

More work with the Sierra Club today, photographing our local Hands Across the Sands event – one of many across the country – calling for an end to offshore drilling and federal action to support clean energy.

Concerned citizens came out for the rally along Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, signed petitions and joined hands in a line that stretched about half a mile. We also got coverage from KSTP (Channel 5), WCCO (Channel 4) and community radio station KFAI.

I wanted to document this event in part, to be able to look back on it one, five, ten years from now, and think about how much has  changed.
