BIPOC Experiences on Colorado Public Lands
Next 100 Colorado is launching a pilot project to collect information about the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of color on public lands in Colorado. They hope to capture the good, the bad, and everything in between, in service of better understanding the experiences of BIPOC in our publicly owned spaces and, if needed, creating or modifying policies to make our outdoors more inclusive of all people. Please help us get the word out about this effort, and encourage your BIPOC friends, colleagues, and family to share their experiences, whether recent or from the past. More information and a link to the collection form is available here.
