The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement during this turbulent and important time of national discourse on historic pain and trauma due to a legacy of systemic racism in our country.

The Alliance believes that clean water and equal access to nature are civil rights that impact human health and quality of life. As an organization, our mission is to bring together communities, companies, and conservationists to improve the lands and waters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This is a mission inclusive of all communities that make up our Chesapeake Bay region.

The Alliance strives to collaborate with partners in the Chesapeake Bay community who demonstrate integrity and amplify diverse voices for equitable and inclusive impact.

The Alliance is committed to creating a more diverse, inclusive, equitable, and just environmental movement.

Black Lives Matter.

In solidarity,
