Advocates for the West is dedicated to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) within our organization and in the environmental movement. We seek to be more inclusive by ensuring greater consideration for, and representation of, the communities we serve. We value working with staff, volunteers, clients, partners, and supporters who share our dedication.

We are striving to better understand the communities and people impacted by our legal work through our relationships with partners and clients and in discussions with the communities impacted by the cases we take on. We are committed to embracing the discomfort and growth potential that comes with engaging in these exploratory conversations.

On our journey to be more just, equitable, and inclusive defenders of the West, we are learning to speak a new language together.
