Become a Friend of SCNA

Please help us spread the naturist message throughout Southern California!

Who are our Friends?

Friends of SCNA support naturists in their preferred practices as established in America for over 90 years: in locations and circumstances where it does not interfere with the rights of others.

Research shows that nudism attracts participants among a wide cross-section of society, with people representing all colors, religions, occupations, body types, age groups, and income brackets.

A 2006 Roper poll conducted nationally showed that over 55 million Americans had skinny-dipped and that, of those polled, 74% believe people who enjoy nude sunbathing should be able to do so without interference from local officials as long as they do so in an area that is accepted for that purpose.

Our Friends make a financial contribution of $25 to support our education and activism programs that promote understanding and tolerance by government, groups and individuals.

You don’t have to be a nudist yourself to be a Friend of SCNA!
