Edgar Franks (left) of Familias Unidas por la Justicia and Guillermo Rogel Jr. (center), Front and Centered's legislative advocate, smile and pose with a community member (right). Edgar holds a sign that reads "Equitable Governance."

The Front and Centered coalition represents diverse and powerful communities of color-led groups across Washington State who come together to advance equity, environmental and climate justice.

Frontline communities are experts in the impacts we face from the climate and ecological crisis as well as in the solutions we need to transition to a healthy, resilient, and sustainable future. We share our expertise and engage broad audiences to influence policy via earned media, social media, email, events, briefings, video, podcasts, research and reports, and other digital and in-person strategies.

Here you can find recent media releases, media coverage, profiles of our coalition speakers who are available to interview with media and share their expertise speaking at events or panels, and other key resources.
