SJCA is headquartered in Durango, Colorado with a satellite office in Farmington, New Mexico. We are a small, tight organization with a staff of eight, and enjoy supportive roles among our staff.
San Juan Citizens Alliance (SJCA) was formed in 1986 and advocates for clean air, pure water, and healthy lands – the foundations of resilient communities, ecosystems and economies in the San Juan Basin. Over its 35-year history, SJCA has successfully advocated for protection of communities from the impacts of energy extraction and production, defeated proposed power plants, safeguarded undeveloped valleys, and secured wildlands protections, among many conservation victories. Our strength is premised on outreach and engagement of local residents and communities, providing them the tools to effectively engage with decision-makers to implement policies that advance conservation.
