June 18, 2020
The mission of the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay is to bring together communities, companies, and conservationists to improve our lands and waters. As an organization, we know we must do a better job of addressing social injustices through our work to restore our Watershed. The Alliance has taken purposeful steps to raise awareness around and address diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice issues and opportunities internally for several years. These are the Alliance’s commitments to our staff, partners, and constituents to continue to advance these efforts in the immediate future.
These are only the latest actions we are taking and have more work to do. Our team is continuing to formalize long-term commitments in this vein as they relate to our organization and programming. The Alliance would like to thank a few of our many partners assisting us on our own organizational learning journey, including the Choose Clean Water Coalition, Lillie Leaf Solutions, and the Chesapeake Bay Trust. It will take all of us in the Chesapeake Bay environmental movement to break down the historically dominant barriers and systems that perpetuate inequality and environmental justice challenges in our diverse communities.
We look forward to continuing to work with you, our partners, and our supporters to ensure that our collective vision of “clean streams and rivers flowing through resilient landscapes, cared for by the people who live, work, and play in the Chesapeake Bay watershed,” is accomplished in a more diverse, inclusive, equitable, and just environmental movement. We are here, we are listening, we are learning.
