Stand (formerly ForestEthics) is working to create a world where respect for people and the environment comes first. We're doing that by challenging corporations and governments to treat people and the environment with respect - because all our lives depend on it. Stand is an advocacy organization made up of people challenging governments and corporations to make the health of our communities, our environment and our climate the top priority. We protect the forests and the stable climate required to keep our planet - and us - thriving. Our campaigns challenge destructive corporate and governmental practices, demand accountability, and create solutions that support all of us, and the environment and climate we depend upon. We recognize and respect the sovereignty of First Nations and tribes, as well as the rights of indigenous people and frontline communities. These communities are often first and most directly impacted, and they provide critical leadership in developing solutions.
