SWEP Three Rivers’ mission is to provide women environmental professionals, working within the Three Rivers region, a community that recognizes and supports women's leadership and career development and provides a forum to share information and ideas and promote public service within the environmental field. We recognize the pain and challenges that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, particularly Black women face in this country and in the Pittsburgh region, and that our success is made possible by the Black women who have lifted this organization up. We are angered and saddened by the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others, and stand in solidarity with SWEP members, our communities, and the many organizations fighting for racial justice. We commit to amplifying marginalized voices and engaging with our members to ensure that all women feel supported by this organization. We will listen to the leaders in the fight for racial justice and identify how we as an organization, through our programs and partnerships, can live the values of anti-racism, inclusion, and appreciation for the communities that support us. Please stand with us in recognizing that Black Lives Matter.
