Dogwood is best known for its No Tankers campaign. Since 2007, Dogwood and allies have prevented a massive expansion of carbon pollution and oil tanker traffic on the West Coast.

Dogwood is committed to an inclusive and diverse workforce. Dogwood strives not to discriminate based on race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, political belief, age, gender, sexual orientation or class.
