Everyone in Colorado deserves the opportunity to experience quality environmental and outdoor learning. Black individuals and communities have a right to live, work, learn and play in the outdoors without racism. The tragic deaths of George Floyd and Black Americans profoundly impact our learners, audiences, and colleagues.
It is all of our responsibility to speak out against racism, systemic injustice, and police brutality, and to elevate voices and amplify stories of people of color. One way that we can work together to uplift Black voices and support Black communities, is to support the local eeOrganizations in our network who are doing important social justice work.
100% of your donation will be shared with the following Black-Led eeOrganizations and events:
- Dr. Justina Ford STEM Institute- JF STEM Institute was founded in the summer of 2010 with the expressed purpose of providing extended learning in the area of STEM education to girls of color in North Denver.
- Mo' Betta Green Marketplace- Mo’ Betta Green Marketlace promotes food literacy, education, and social responsibility through weekly markets in areas of Denver where the built infrastructure doesn’t allow grocery stores.
