ABOUT WESTERN STATES CENTER
We strengthen the organizing capacity of often-marginalized communities, with a particular emphasis on gender justice, racial justice, and tribal sovereignty work.
We provide training, leadership development, and organizational capacity support to social movements and leaders committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We convene culture-makers to shift the narrative and use culture as a vehicle for base- and power-building in non-traditional social change spaces.
We assist communities and civil society to effectively respond to social movements that exploit bigotry and intolerance.
