Mission or Purpose
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay is a regional nonprofit organization that builds and fosters partnerships to protect and to restore the Bay and its rivers. The Alliance does not lobby or litigate. Instead, we do the slow, hard work of bridging dialogue between groups that don't see eye-to-eye, forming strategies for joint solutions, and building the capacity of communities for local-level action. To this end, the Alliance: Develops methods and tools for restoration activities and trains citizens to use them; Mobilizes decision-makers, stakeholders, and other citizens to learn about Bay issues and participate in resolving them; Provides analysis, information, and evaluation of Bay policies, proposals, and institutions.
