NAC is one of the organizations that works hard to preserve nudist freedom. NAC's mission:
"NAC exists to advance and protect the rights of naturists throughout North America. NAC supports the responsible recreational nude use of public lands."
One great tool NAC provides online is a guide to laws concerning naturist rights.
Local lawmakers, trying to do the best they can for the community, sometimes create ordinances in their towns in an effort to keep sexually-oriented adult entertainment clubs out of town or away from residential areas.
Sometimes these laws have a negative impact on non-sexually oriented naturist rights. NAC is among the organizations that try to create awareness about how naturism is completely different and how lawmakers can be more accommodating.
