Our Values in Action
We know DEIA is not a destination, but an ongoing journey. American Forests is committed to building diversity and inclusivity, in the field and at every level of the organization.
DEIA is one of American Forests’ core values, and it is a driving force behind our programs and initiatives. DEIA is essential to restoring America’s forests for both cities and landscapes: in guiding cities to achieve tree equity, in collaboration between the American Forests team and diverse partners to protect forest health, in our policy efforts to advance equitable climate solutions for all, in our pursuit of social equity, and in our goals and vision for the future.
