Who We Are
The Sustainable Southeast Partnership (SSP) is effective because of our inclusivity and diversity. Our partnership includes international, regional and community-based organizations as well as representatives from tribal governments in the rural Southeast Alaskan villages of Kake, Klawock, Sitka, Kasaan, Hydaburg, Hoonah and Yakutat. Please visit our Staff Page to meet some of the people behind the partnership. Below is only a shortlist of our core partners. When we work, we draw from the perspectives and resources of many additional organizations including cities, schools, and federal land managers.
