Founded in 1999, California Coastkeeper Alliance (CCKA) is a non-profit organization that coordinates, supports and enhances the work of local California Waterkeepers to ensure Californians enjoy clean water and a healthy coast. CCKA began as coalition of Southern California Waterkeepers, and it has since expanded along the entire coast, up to the Oregon border. CCKA and its member Waterkeepers represent the only statewide-local partnership focused on the health of the state's waters and coastal ecosystems. Coordinating on-the-ground work at the community level with policy work at the statewide level, CCKA protects and expands upon the advances made by place-based Waterkeepers by advocating before state decision-makers on water-related issues important to California’s communities.
