We live in a culture that is very comfortable sharing what they are against. But we believe it’s time to show what we are for.
And as a movement, we are for the beaches.
Our goal is to be #forthebeaches by supporting the local community of businesses, schools, and events of Jacksonville’s beaches. Together, we will encourage people to be FOR Jacksonville and FOR each other.
Check out some upcoming events in our community below, but always be on the lookout for how YOU can be for the beaches.
