Our mission is to mobilize people in Northwest Washington to build just and thriving communities and to protect the land, water and climate on which we all depend. Justice and equity are core organizational values, which guide our decision making around business partnerships.
We stand against racism, white supremacy and the ingrained structures and institutions that enable and perpetuate them. Today and historically, Indigenous, Black and other communities of color are frequently the most harmed by environmental degradation. We envision a future where every person benefits from clean energy, less pollution and thriving outdoor places. We also celebrate NW Washington’s LGBTQ+ community and stand firmly against anti-gay and anti-trans rhetoric. In short, aligning your company with RE Sources means aligning it with values of inclusion, equity and justice.
While we understand that every organization (including us) has room to grow in terms of greening its operations and reducing its environmental impacts, RE Sources seeks business partnerships that are genuinely committed to doing right by our region’s workers, communities and environment. Greenwashers need not apply.
