CA Quad Clubs Head to Capitol

Representatives from a number of CA Quad Clubs attended Oceans Day at CA Capitol.

Project Description

On November 29th students got on the train and headed to Sacremento to make a statement about plastic bags and support a statewide initiative to ban single use bags.

Surfrider, along with several statewide organizations, plans an annual “Ocean Day” where advocates hit the Capitol to speak with decision makers.  This year was particularly exciting for Surfrider because 25% of our Chapter leadership attended the lobby day.  In all, over 70 activists from various organizations visited 100 Senate and Assembly offices to discuss: climate change and sea level rise planning; ocean ecosystem protection; plastic pollution solutions; and various pieces of legislation that will help protect our ocean and coastline.
