Policymakers need to hear directly from you about the importance of the ocean and Great Lakes and their value to our communities, environment, and economy.
CHOW provides you with the opportunity to have a defining voice for our ocean during a critical time as Congress is making decisions on federal funding and advancing sound policies. Join the hundreds of people coming into DC and thousands more participating online in advocating for our ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes.
Tell your elected officials that the ocean and Great Lakes are a priority. Take action today!
