Newport Surfrider Surf n’ Stewardship Film Series “The Politics of Sand”
The Surfrider Foundation’s Newport Chapter is proud to announce its second annual Surf n’ Stewardship film series.
2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the passage of Oregon’s Beach Bill. This landmark legislation guarantees access and makes public Oregon’s 362 miles of beaches and the movement to pass this legislation forever made beaches a birthright for Oregonians and visitors from around the world. In celebration of this important anniversary, the Newport Chapter has curated films focused on the enjoyment and protection of our treasured ocean and beaches.
The Politics of Sand, is a film about the history and substantial effort that went into Governor Oswald West’s 1913 landmark legislation and the creation of the 1967 Oregon Beach Bill, which together solidified Oregon’s beaches as open and accessible to the public.
