Puget Soundkeeper is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a historically white-led organization, Puget Soundkeeper recognizes the privilege, access, and proximity to power that the organization holds, and our role in perpetuating under-representation of marginalized communities in our work. Therefore:
- We choose to include, elevate, and empower the voices of those who have historically been marginalized and are most impacted by clean water issues.
- We choose to advance clean water in Washington state by ensuring that policies, legislation, and programs we work on do not leave communities impacted behind.
- We choose to embrace and cultivate diversity throughout our board, staff, members, volunteers, partnerships, and community engagements.
- We choose to fight systemic racism, white supremacy, and oppression in all its various forms.
