to promote naturists and naturism, to increase opportunities
for naturist activities, and protect the naturist
opportunities that exist. Its efforts include lobbying,
working with other naturist organizations, monitoring and
affecting legislation and case law that affects naturists, and
promoting naturism as a legitimate recreational activity and
lifestyle. It advocates for positive legislation to

court cases regarding issues involving first amendment rights,
improper law enforcement, naturist business and family rights,
and top-free rights of women.

educating naturists and non-naturists about the many benefits
of naturism, improving the awareness of naturism and body
acceptance, and achieving an understanding and acceptance of
naturists and their activities throughout North America.
These goals are achieved by many methods including initiating
and participating in projects to further the understanding and
acceptance of naturism, awarding grants to projects
demonstrating a need and an ability to benefit the causes of
naturism and body acceptance, providing knowledgeable speakers
for informative presentations, funding professional opinion
polls establishing evidence of widespread support, providing
awards and scholarships to high-school and college students,
providing a growing online compilation of legal materials
pertinent to naturists and nudity-related issues, providing
local naturist groups with needed informational and financial
assistance, producing and funding various educational naturist
videos and materials, and supporting lawsuits regarding issues
involving first amendment rights, improper law enforcement,
naturist family rights, and top-free rights for women. A
very important project of NEF is preserving naturist history
