Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Commitment
Outdoor recreation and natural areas were created as a right to enjoy, not a privilege. We at Cape Perpetua Collaborative have taken time to reflect on the challenging and traumatic events against BlackIndigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in Oregon and beyond. We have a lot of work to do. Collective action is important and necessary to dismantle systemic racism. Silence is not an option. It is time to listen, learn, grow and adapt to improve engagement and make everyone feel welcome in our natural areas and within the conservation movement.
The Cape Perpetua Collaborative is committed to doing more to speak out against injustice. We commit to drive support towards organizations committed to social justice and continue working with our partners on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts. Just as we value the richness biodiversity adds to our environment, we also recognize that conservation is best advanced by good leadership and a blend of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, experiences, identities, and ideas.
