The SER-UW stands in solidarity with our Black community against systemic racism and social injustice. Racial and environmental injustices are heavily connected and must not be considered independently. We cannot ignore the intersection of environmentalism and social justice. Environmental fields lack diversity, and black people are greatly underrepresented in the outdoor industry. Biological diversity is vital to thriving ecosystems, and the same can be said for human communities. The SER-UW is committed to inclusion in our organization and will continue to learn and advocate for justice for people and the planet.
We have created a living document (linked here) compiling black environmental resources including black owned/founded environmental organizations, black environmental activists, and black owned farms. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or message @ser.uw on Instagram to suggest edits/changes.
