Coastal Recreation Hill Day - 2021


Make Your Voice Heard!

163 meetings. 161 Attendees. 78 Surfrider chapters & clubs. 25 States and Territories. 1 Goal.

Surfrider members, recreation industry leaders, partners, and ambassadors from around the country traveled virtually to Washington D.C. the week of March 8, 2021 to meet with our nation’s federal leaders and urge them to protect our coasts and ocean.

In 160+ meetings with Congressional leaders, our coalition discussed Surfrider's 2021 priorities—demanding climate action, protecting clean water, and eliminating plastic pollution—all while urging elected officials to stand up for our coasts.

Our goal is to elevate the voice of the coastal recreation community and inspire stronger federal leadership on these critical issues.

Our 2021 Federal Priorities

For 2021 our federal priorities focused on climate change action, protecting clean water and public health, and reducing plastic pollution. Check out the videos below from Surfrider Ambassadors Leah Dawson, Greg Long and Dr. Cliff Kapono as they break down the importance of these three areas of focus.
