PARTNER EVENT: National Wildlife Federation, in partnership with Outdoor Afro, Black AF in STEM, The Links, Inc., and Patagonia, will be hosting a National Townhall on Creating Safe Spaces to convene Black leaders to recap lessons learned and share best practices from our three-part roundtable series. We seek to build upon what’s happening now in an effort to identify programmatic and policy opportunities for people to work collaboratively to address the inhibitors Black people face in safely accessing and enjoying the outdoors.
The event, taking place on Tuesday, April 27, 6 pm – 8 pm EST, will be moderated by Mamie Parker and Mustafa Santiago Ali and it will feature:
- Rue Mapp, Founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro
- Chad Brown, Founder and President of Soul River, Inc. and Love is King
- Michael Howard, Founder and CEO of Fuller Park Community Development
- Beattra Wilson, Assistant Director for Cooperative Forestry at the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service
