River Alliance of Wisconsin’s 2023-28 Strategic Plan

Dec 20, 2023 | Uncategorized

This year, River Alliance celebrated our 30th anniversary. While we looked back at the past three decades of clean water protection by inspiring advocates around the state (find some of their victories in our Fall 2023 newsletter), we’ve also spent a lot of time looking forward into River Alliance’s future.

Earlier this year, we dove deep into a strategic planning exercise that will guide our actions for the next five years. We had discussions with our staff, board, and friends who offered their insights into what River Alliance can uniquely offer.

Our new five-year strategic plan renews our focus on group engagement. We will work to establish relationships in new communities and deepen relationships in existing communities – especially marginalized communities that face systemic barriers to resources, access to clean/safe water, and the clean water movement.

In the future, we will also focus even more on climate resilience and a sustainable food system. River Alliance will continue to collaborate with local watershed protection organizations, farmer-led councils working on regenerative agriculture, and dam removal/hydropower reform advocates so that our interconnected waters will be clean for this generation and the next.

We are also putting strategies in place for new community-centric ways of building support for clean water, and diversifying our board, staff, and supporters.

As always, there is a lot of work to do, but we are prepared to work collaboratively to take action.
