Heal the Bay  🏝 The next #NothinButSand Cleanup is @ Redondo Beach on July 21👇

#tbt to Nick Gabaldón Day - a celebration every June for the first recorded surfer of African-American and Mexican-American descent in California. Thanks to support this year from @ca_coastal and @cbmla_, Joshua was able to find his first wave!

Our president @drshelleyluce shares powerful testimony about Heal the Bay’s support for the Safe, Clean Water Program - a public funding measure that will increase nature-based stormwater capture, treatment and reuse in our region, while growing equitable community benefits from:
💧Less concrete... more green space.
💧Less pollution... more clean water.
💧Less health risk... more resilience.
💧Less imported water... more local sources.
Yesterday, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted to PASS this important water quality ballot initiative in a 4-1 vote.
Now it’s up to L.A. voters to secure our water future by ✅VOTING YES for SAFE, CLEAN WATER✅ on the ballot this November.
We’d like to thank the Supervisors for listening to us on this issue, the @OurWaterLA coalition for rallying support, and the Heal the Bay community for your ongoing advocacy and educational efforts.
Angelenos, you will be able to cast your vote on the November 2018 ballot❕Learn more at

Democracy at work: Today, we are in DTLA standing up for #OurWaterLA. The L.A. County Board of Supervisors will be voting soon on whether to place the Safe, Clean Water Program on the November 2018 ballot - a public funding measure that could raise $300 million a year for nature-based stormwater capture projects. Stay tuned to our IG Story for live updates.

Thank you, #SantaMonica for the Most Loved Nonprofit Award. We are grateful to collaborate with our local partners and create positive change in our community. 💙

Are plastic straws taking over your feed? Let us add some more to celebrate beverage-culture purveyor @starbucks for pledging to go strawless by 2020. Stoked to see less of their iconic green single-use plastic straws at our beach cleanups in L.A. County.

Go #FoamFree and say no thanks to single-use plastic this 4th of July. *Pass* on the plastic straws, cups, to-go containers, bags, plates and utensils. No matter where you are in greater L.A., the plastic trash near you may reach the ocean. Every action you take makes a difference. 🗽
