Everyone’s Earth: Conversations on Race and Environment

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Outdoors — What’s Next?

A Discussion About Research and Education on Anti-Racism in the Outdoors

When it comes to listening to and taking action on the perspectives of underrepresented communities — who are greatly impacted by systematic racism, ableism, and environmental racism — the greater outdoor community has fallen short.

In response, Together Outdoors created the Resource Hub, a powerful online tool to help BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQUIA, and other intersecting communities take ownership of the creation and distribution of resources geared towards making the outdoors accessible for all.

Learn more about Together Outdoors and its Resource Hub at the spring 2023 Everyone’s Earth lecture.
