About Me

Alyssa Macy (she/her) serves as the CEO of Washington Conservation Action (WCA) and a citizen of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon. Under her leadership, WCA has taken significant strides in transforming from a historically white led environmental organization to a multicultural environmental justice organization with a deep commitment to upholding and honoring tribal sovereignty.

Prior to WCA, she was responsible for $33 million in tribal programming, services, and natural resources as her nation’s Chief Operations Officer. Alyssa has built power in Indian Country from the grassroots to the United Nations for more than two decades.

She served on the Indigenous Global Steering Committee for the first ever United Nations World Conference on Indigenous Peoples in 2014 and recently worked with Tribal leaders to build Native Vote Washington, a permanent project of WCA focused on strengthening democracy and Native voting access in the region. In 2023, she received the Indigenous Leadership Award from Ecotrust (read more here), recognizing her efforts to protect and uplift tribal sovereignty, advocate for salmon protection, and her leadership in Washington state’s environmental community.

She is a breast cancer Thriver, an avid photographer and is happiest adventuring in nature.
