The West Coast Action Alliance is a virtual network to support more than 20 members-based organizations and citizen groups on the west coast from California to Canada, that seek to be heard regarding various aspects of the U.S. Navy’s expansion into public lands and airspace over and around their communities and the nearby seas. WCAA does not represent or speak for any of the groups in the alliance that are listed below. WCAA does not give media interviews nor will it respond to inquiries from members of the public on behalf of these groups. The purpose of this website is to help these organizations and the public “connect the dots” and give a more public presence to the number of concerned citizens who are organizing up and down the west coast of the United States and Canada, because they do not believe that they have been properly informed and/or that their voices have not been heard, as required by law, regarding the Navy’s plans.

If you have questions or wish to become involved then please contact an organization near you. If you are a membership-based citizen’s organization that would like to join this alliance, you can contact WCAA at westcoastactionalliance (at) gmail (dot) com.
