Document Description
Brown Girl Surf, fiscally sponsored by Social Good Fund, will connect about 140 people, mostly girls and women-identifying, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks of color, to ocean-based recreation. The Surf Sister Program includes a suite of complementary beach-based, female-centered surf programs designed to welcome participants into an inclusive and supportive surf community. It also provides opportunities to grow as surfers, community leaders, and ocean advocates. This project is CEQA exempt, and the NOE is being filed by the State Coastal Conservancy, which is granting funds towards the project.
