There is a reason why people refer to the West coast as the best coast. With a topography consisting of every sight of nature you can think of to a collection of metropolises that excel in any industry imaginable, the West region truly is the whole package. Our region consists of YJA members who come from Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan.

Home to some of the most vegan friendly cities, some of the country's biggest Sanghs, and some of the most socially and politically active communities in the country, the West is a dream come true for YJAers. Our YJA community hosts several events a year, from national dinners to volunteering events at our local Jain centers. We have growing communities throughout many colleges in the region and attract members who are originally from all over the world. The YJA West region truly is a family that spans thousands of miles.

If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas for activities and projects you want to see in the West, please feel free to reach out to Ankith Desai at west@yja.org.
