Women of Color on Creating a Safe and Inclusive Outdoors Social Media Toolkit

Women of color face many obstacles to accessing the outdoors, including a lack of safety, racism, sexism, and distance to outdoor spaces. Research shows that being outdoors can significantly improve the physical and mental health of people, but not everyone has access equally, including women of color and especially Indigenous women, who are often barred from accessing land that belongs to them. Since the outdoors sector has often excluded them, women of color have created their own communities and spaces to help one another heal and connect with nature.
