As we work to undo past harm and to create a more just, inclusive, and equitable field of nature connection, listening and learning from one another is essential. This October, we were blessed to hear from several BIPOC teacher, Iya Tahira, Sangoma Oludoye, Kapi’olani Laronal, and David Vanderhoop, as they shared their experience and offered a poignant call to raise the bar of our work.
Below is the invitation from prior to the webinar:
1) Taking action to include land acknowledgment as a practice and policy. Do you agree and have you taken steps toward?
2) Our stories from our experience with NCN and the Network, AoM, and our relation to our communities.
3) Our perspective on the role of BIPOC in this time of change.
Our goal is to share who we are, our passions, our history for some perspective, and what we believe, as people of the Earth, have, to broaden the limitations of white people in leadership positions that hold them back, therefor, hold us back by not giving us the opportunity to shine light on the gifts we bring.
