Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion + Our Public Lands

National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is collaborating with UW Seattle student and our Next Generation Advisory Council representative for the Northwest Region (WA & OR), Ashley Mocorro Powell, and Bennington College student, Ian Reid, on a project to promote and address diversity, equity and inclusion in the Pacific Northwest outdoors–including national parks, public lands, and representation in outdoor recreation.

This Thursday February 9th, we are hosting a FREE screening of An American Ascent, a film documenting the first Black climbing team ascent of Denali in celebration of National Black & African American History Month. The screening will be followed by creatively-grounded discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion in our parks and storytelling.

Thanks to your UW partners at the Intellectual House and UW Chapter of Advancing Hispanics/Chicanos & Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) and Seattle University’s Outdoor Adventure Recreation Program
