NETA IS FOR
everyone.

NETA is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion, and to positively impact communities disproportionately affected by the war on drugs through high rates of arrest and incarceration. We believe that the people in our internal and external communities are the most valuable assets we have. The combined sum of our differences, experiences, creativity, self-expression and unique capabilities represents an integral part of not only the NETA culture, but also of our overall success.

NETA stands united in the fight for social justice and racial equality. We continue to believe that we are in this together as one human race today and every day. NETA stands against injustice and racism.
