I am part of a coalition of fellow park enthusiasts dedicated to promoting diversity and equity in our public lands. We’ve been collaborating on posts since mid 2020.
Each month, our group spotlights a relevant organization. These organizations are working to bridge the gap between outdoor spaces and underrepresented communities. This year’s features include:
- Jan: Latino Outdoors
- Feb: Outdoor Afro
- Mar: Hike Clerb
- Apr: Indigenous Environmental Network
- May: Outdoor Asian
- June: Soul River
- July: Cultural Survival
- Aug: Climate Justice Alliance
- Sept: Native Conservancy
- Oct: Wild Diversity
- Nov: Harriett Tubman Home
- Dec: Native Indigenous Women’s Resource Center
During the month of February, we are highlighting the work of Justice Outside in our community effort to showcase organizations who are working towards social justice, environmental action, and more inclusive public lands.
About Justice Outside►
Known as Youth Outside, prior to June 2021, Justice Outside advocates for racial justice and equity in the outdoor and environmental movement. Justice Outside envisions a just world where Black, Indigenous, and Communities of Color experience safety, health and abundant joy through meaningful relationships with one another and the outdoors.
Working to remove barriers that have historically prevented Communities of Color from accessing meaningful experiences and professional opportunities in the outdoors, the organization has been cultivating outdoor programming for those most impacted by racial injustice.
As an organization, Justice Outside seeks to empower voices, create leadership, and to help facilitate healing and growth around the outdoors and outdoor related experiences for Communities of Color.
