Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Vision Statement

The Surfrider Foundation is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization for all people who protect and enjoy the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. Our success and impact depends on learning from our community, standing in solidarity with our allies and working towards a more just future, both for our organization and the environmental movement as a whole. 


Clean Water & Healthy Beaches For All People

Our ocean, waves and beaches belong to everyone. The Surfrider Foundation welcomes all people who care about protecting clean water and healthy beaches to join us and find a nearby chapter, become a member or support our nationwide network of more than 170 volunteer-led chapters and clubs. 

These values speak to our collective community comprised of all races, ethnicities, class, disability, language, and gender identity. We strive to incorporate this commitment into every aspect of Surfrider’s mission to protect the ocean and coasts for the future.
