About Conservationists of ColorConservationists of Color is an affinity group for people of color who believe in protecting the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we love while creating healthy, thriving communities. This group puts the voices of those who are often relegated to the margins at the forefront, while offering safe and brave spaces for conservationists of color. Members are encouraged to network with one another and engage in dialogue about how to take action against racism, oppression within the conservation movement and the communities in which we work. We will also advocate and implement best practices for self-care and self-advocacy within conservation spaces. This group is relatively new and welcomes people of color and allies to join and support this work.
