Coastal Recreation Hill Day - 2021


Join Us March 8-11 and Make Your Voice Heard!

Surfrider members, recreation industry leaders and our partners will meet virtually with our nation’s federal leaders to urge them to protect our coasts and ocean. Visit with congressional offices and make your voice heard! This year’s Hill Day will kick off on Monday evening with a welcome plenary, including a keynote address and panel featuring policy experts, industry leaders, and professional athletes.

Our federal leaders need to hear from Surfrider’s network and the coastal recreational community. Under the new Biden Administration, this year provides a historic opportunity to enact strong laws and policies to protect coastal resources and the socioeconomic benefits they provide.

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

Our Federal Priorities For 2021 Include:

  • Climate Change Action
  • Clean Water & Public Health
  • Reducing Plastic Pollution

Registration for participating chapters, supporters and partners is free and all materials and training will be provided. Attendees are expected to commit to coordinating with their Hill Day Captain, studying the materials provided, and participating in all events, including the training on Tuesday.  Attendees can sign up to participate in meetings with congressional offices on Wednesday and Thursday. On Monday evening, March 8, Surfrider will host a virtual welcome reception and networking event for all participants and supporters.
