UConn Extension has been collaborating with partners at Cornell and UW Madison to host “Everyone’s Earth: Voices of National Leadership in Anti-Racism in the Outdoors”. This is a collaborative national event held on September 30 from 12:30 – 2 PM that will feature a panel discussion with three national leaders in outdoor equity.
Join us for a conversation with those leading the nation’s effort to address racism and the outdoors. Together, we will explore ways we can increase diversity and equity as it relates to outdoor accessibility and engagement. Leaders will also showcase a recently developed Anti-Racism in the Outdoors Resource Guide.
Goals of the event:
-Raising awareness of the importance of anti-racism in the outdoors, including the Anti-Racism in the Outdoors guide
-Challenging concepts and ideas that marginalize people in nature and the outdoors
-Elevating the voice of national organizations and leaders working on this topic
