On February 26 - 28, 2020, Surfrider members, recreation industry leaders and our partners will convene in Washington D.C. to ask our nation’s leaders to protect our coasts and ocean! Come visit with congressional offices, network with advocates from around the country and enjoy social events in the evening.

Our federal leaders need to hear from Surfrider chapters and other recreational users. Both Congress and the Trump administration are considering proposals that would be very damaging to coastal resources and the socioeconomic benefits they provide. Our goal is to elevate the voice of the ocean recreation community and inspire stronger federal leadership on these critical issues.

Our lobby priorities for 2020 include:

  • Take Action on Climate Change
  • Protect Clean Water & Public Health
  • Reduce Plastic Pollution
  • Defend Public Lands & Waters

Registration is free and all materials and training will be provided, but attendees are responsible for their own travel, food and lodging. Attendees can sign up to participate in meetings with congressional offices on Thursday, with the potential for additional meetings on Friday. On Wednesday evening, February 26, Surfrider will host a welcome reception and networking event for all participants and supporters. 

Please join us for a gathering you won't soon forget!
