Our Commitment

We deeply believe that justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) is vital in our work to effectively advocate for our coasts. We are making the following commitments to elevate these values in our work, both internally and externally.

Protection & Enjoyment of our Ocean, Waves, & Beaches for ALL People.

How can you help promote JEDI values?

JEDI values start within your own circle! 

  • Expand & Diversify: gaining new perspectives & embracing differences. 
  • Recognize environmental injustice within your community.
  • Call out systemic racism and work to remove any institutional barriers that add layers of disadvantage to any and all communities.
  • Promote openness and tackle microaggressions.
  • See something? Say something. Reach out to about any JEDI-related issues in your coastal community.
