As Wild Earth is serving a more racially, ethnically, and economically diverse community, we are beginning to understand our responsibility to support racial and gender equity, address cultural appropriation, and lead social justice initiatives throughout our organization.
To truly uplift and serve all of our future leaders, Wild Earth must acknowledge past and present forms of injustice and look within to understand our own inherited artifacts of oppression so that we can rightly help to create a better future for all.
"If you have come here to help me, you are wasting our time.
But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s
Wild Earth joins inspired leaders in offering multi-generational programs and events that strengthen connections with ourselves, others, and the Earth while building ecological, social and cultural resilience. Located along the Shawangunk Ridge in New York’s Hudson Valley, Wild Earth is a not-for-profit that runs nature-based programs for children, teens, families and adults. More about Wild's work.
