Cultivating Community Outdoors: Justice Outside’s Inaugural Conference


Cultivating Community Outdoors is sold out! Thank you for your interest in our conference. We’re amazed and deeply moved by our community’s support for this conference.

Justice Outside is excited to invite our community to Cultivating Community Outdoors: Justice Outside’s Inaugural Conference! Taking place from April 27 to April 28, 2023, this will be an opportunity for our community members to foster connections, facilitate growth, and expand our understanding of community in the outdoors. Cultivating Community Outdoors will center Black, Indigenous, and Communities of Color in recognition that through meaningful relationships with one another and the outdoors, we can build a world where we experience safety, health, and abundant joy.

Our conference is an invitation to join Justice Outside as we cultivate seeds of racial justice in the outdoor and environmental movements. As we continue to reach milestones in our organization’s history, this inaugural conference will be a practice in radical envisioning and mapping out our movement’s next steps; your participation and perspective is warmly welcomed. Join us!
