About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Human

We are a San Diego based 501(c)(3) Organization whose focus is to diversify our coastal spaces. We focus on bringing members of BIPOC and underserved communities to our coastal spaces to recreate and learn about ocean conservation and ocean safety. We do this by removing barriers and providing resources with our programs at no cost to participants. 

Paddle for Peace is driven by the mission to provide equitable access to coastal environments, particularly for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and underserved communities. We recognize the importance of creating inclusive spaces that allow everyone to experience the beauty and wonder of the ocean.

We also partner with other local organizations to cultivate an authentically diverse network of  humans who work cohesively to create a  space that is inclusive and representative of people from different backgrounds. We support our community by providing a sense of belonging and purpose.

At Paddle for Peace, we truly believe that representation matters.
