The Bay Area Alliance for Sustainable Communities
(Bay Area Alliance) is a multi-stakeholder coalition established in 1997 to improve the prosperity of the economy, the health of the environment and the level of social equity in the nine-county Bay Area. The coalition brings representatives from all sectors - business, government, environmental and community development - together to address major regional challenges to inhabitants' quality of life. The Bay Area Alliance facilities dialogue to identify shared goals and develop collaborative action strategies. Additional activities include developing and publishing educational materials, policy advocacy, and coalition-building actions.
The work of the Bay Area Alliance is directed by a Steering Committee
whose nine members represent economic, environmental, social equity and government interests.
The members of the Bay Area Alliance
are constituency-based public and private sector organizations that represent economic, social equity, environmental and government perspectives as well as the civic, philanthropic and faith communities.
