Elevating the visibility of Montana’s diverse outdoor enthusiasts by fostering a supportive and inclusive community for people of color.
Who We Are:
We are people of color aspiring to build a supportive and inclusive community to encourage Montanans of all sizes, shapes, and colors to get out and enjoy all that Montana has to offer. Our membership includes people of diverse backgrounds, languages, cultures, and abilities who share an enthusiasm for getting outside.
What We Do:
We get out to enjoy and explore through a wide variety of activities from nature walks and sunny picnics, to climbing and mountaineering- Earthtone Outside MT provides a platform for people of color to find friends and mentors to help them explore new activities or refine their existing skill set. We understand that learning to climb, ski, hike or even swim for the first time can be intimidating. We are here to help, and can’t wait to spend time outside with you!
What We Stand For:
Earthtone Outsideᴹᵀ is dedicated to elevating the visibility, agency, and representation of People of Color (POCs) in the outdoors and in any and all areas, realms, ways, and fields in which they have been historically marginalized, disenfranchised, and oppressed, in addition to any other historically marginalized, disenfranchised, and oppressed identities. Our mission is to not only create safety and community for POCs and other historically marginalized (including intersectional) identities whilst actively enjoying the outdoors, but to share ideas and to educate all people on the importance of this issue. This page is dedicated to respectful, conscientious dialogue around sharing pro-POC and anti-racist upward mobilizing activity focusing on, but not always limited to, the enjoyment and experience of Mother Nature and the outdoors.
We work with local NGOs and companies in Montana to help promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) within their team. If you are interested in learning more about our mission or hiring us for consultation work please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
