We have work to do. We are committed. Outdoor Industry Association

The recent police killing of George Floyd and countless instances of racism and racial violence against Black people are alarming and horrific. We know these events are not isolated and are part of a long history of systemic racism and injustice in our country and in the outdoors. People thriving outside is a core value for our industry and we know that racism, funding, and policies have often prevented equitable access and enjoyment of the outdoors. As the outdoor industry, we must immediately take action and increase our commitment to achieve racial justice, diversity, equity and inclusion in the outdoors, in our workplaces and across the country. As the association for the outdoor industry, we have a voice—and a corresponding responsibility to do more.

We don’t have all of the answers and have listening and learning to do, but we must do better and start now. We need to admit that we are part of the problem. We must listen to, learn from and amplify the voices of our Black community leaders, friends and activists. must take meaningful action. Statements of solidarity are important, but action is paramount.
