Social Justice in the Outdoors Workshop

Hosted by Hampshire College/a collaboration with Rachel Hailey and Associates

I’m thrilled to be organizing a workshop on Social Justice in the Outdoors! This is a collaboration with Rachel Hailey and Associates and will be hosted through the Hampshire College Outdoor Program. This 4.5 hour event will bring together students, leaders, and educators in the outdoor world to take a deep dive into how Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion have historically been present in the outdoor world, current initiatives working toward the liberation and social change in outdoor spaces, and how can we, as a full-picture community, contribute to a shift in access, power, narratives, and comfort and safety in outdoor recreation and education. This workshop style conversation will be interactive in nature with a combination of panels and facilitated group discussions. It will not be complete without you there!
