I’m Ronald [Zurie] the director of a group called NightSanders Camper’s.
We are a Multicultural group of Campers. Our plight is for our inherited camping rights on Afro-American Beach.
Location: Fernandina Beach, Nassau County. North of Jacksonville Florida.

I’ve attended months of meetings with Nassau County Omnibus Beach / Beach Community Working Group. Ive reread all the paperwork set forth by the Committee all white male board members.

Yes, We have submitted a 6 page “Draft Report” to this committee with no avail.

Yes, We do understand their reasoning and decisions to end all camping on Nassau County beaches. Its bad behavior on the Northern end of Nassau County beaches.

This decision will also affect our Historical camping rights on Afro-American Beach, located on the Southern end of Nassau County beaches. We consider ourselves the [stewards] of this Historical Beach area.
