Commitment to Equity

[Declaración Sobre Equidad - Leer en Español Aquí]


NCAP values equity, diversity and inclusion within our organization and with our partners to further our mission. We seek to understand and address historical and current patterns of oppression and racism within our organization and in how we do our work. We continually strive to build NCAP as an equitable, antiracist and multicultural organization where differences are seen as assets.

NCAP staff reside on the stolen and occupied ancestral homelands of the Chehalis, Kalapuya, Molalla, Northern Paiute, Shoshone-Bannock, Tenino and Wasco Peoples. We acknowledge the brutal and endless atrocities, including forced removal, experienced by Native peoples in our region and recognize that traditional ecological knowledge and the inherent rights of nature are a guiding force to our work.
