What’s It Like Being A Person of Colour in The Outdoor Industry? It’s Time To Listen.

If we’re being frank, here at Mountain Life we don’t know what it’s like. So, we’re taking this opportunity to listen up those whose voices are not heard often enough—people of colour. A rarity in our industry, these are the people who face a real struggle that most of us can’t begin to understand. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Here are their stories, suggestions, and thoughts.  We’ll keep updating this page as more comes to light, and in the meantime we’ll be unpacking ways we can help, listening to the voices who deserve to be heard,  and digesting the tragic events of the past few days, months, years, and decades. —ML
