Welcome to Western States Center's website
As the Center approaches our 30th anniversary in 2017, we see the political moment before us as one of not only fierce urgency, but one of great opportunity. We hold a vision of justice that is not about any single campaign, issue or election. And we won’t rest until we replace a politics of domination, with one of liberation for all of us.
