Equity & Inclusion

McKinley Depave2

Equity Statement

The Pierce Conservation District practices equity and inclusion by listening and learning from our valued and diverse communities, and being ready to adapt and design more intentional or additional support so that we are equitable in the delivery of our programs and services.

We strive to serve all residents of Pierce County and recognize that people of color, indigenous communities, low income people, immigrants, and refugees are disproportionately impacted by ecological decline. This often results in shorter life expectancy because of higher exposure to air and water pollution, less access to healthy food, impacts of climate change, and lack of open space and a built environment that facilitates healthy lives. 

We are fully committed to serving the people of Pierce County through the design and delivery of inclusive programming  for all.Camila and Lisa backlit
