Tell Congress It's Time to Protect Our Ocean and Coasts from Climate Change, Pollution and Plastic

Goal: 5000

Rising seas and severe weather events threaten coastal ecosystems, infrastructure and communities across the nation. Our wastewater systems are overloaded, causing spills of raw and undertreated sewage into communities and waterways. Meanwhile, plastic waste pollutes our beaches while carbon emissions from plastic production further fuels climate change. 

Fortunately, we have the tools to manage our coasts more resiliently, ensure clean water on our beaches, protect marine wildlife and shift our practices away from fossil-fuel intensive, single-use plastic products. Congress has the ability to take the critical steps needed to make sure our ocean, waves and beaches are protected for all people. 

Surfrider will deliver your message to Congress, our federal administration, and resource management agencies during this year’s Coastal Recreation Hill Day in Washington DC on March 9 and 10. Surfrider delegates from 56 chapters and clubs, representing 23 states and territories will be meeting, in person, with our elected officials from across the country, asking for their support for clean water and healthy beaches. We will make sure that your appreciation for the coast is heard.

Please make your voice heard now and help us turn the tide on plastic pollution, climate impacts on our coasts, and contaminated beaches across the nation!
