Reimagining a Diverse and Inclusive Great Outdoors

Thursday, June 24 | 2:00PM ET 

In 2019, data collected from National Park Service, US Forest Service, and Fish and Wildlife Service found that 88% to 95% of all visitors to public lands are White. Communities of color have a long history of being systematically excluded and facing discrimination and racism on public lands. At the same time, there is a movement of communities and organizations led by people of color who are guiding the effort to foster diversity and inclusion in outdoor spaces to ensure that every person can safely participate and benefit from public lands.

 

Join us for a Congressional briefing with leaders in the movement and learn what all stakeholders can do to foster diversity and inclusion on public lands.

Remarks from Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA).
