The Western States Center's mission is to build a progressive movement for social, economic, racial and environmental justice in the eight Western states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Alaska. Our vision is of a just and equitable society governed by a strong, grassroots democracy. We work on three levels: strengthening grassroots organizing and community-based leadership; building broad-based statewide progressive coalitions; and encouraging a new generation of citizen leaders to run for public office and engage in the public policy process.
