You are invited THIS WEEK to a special event:
National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is collaborating with UW Seattle student and our Next Generation Advisory Council representative for the Northwest Region (WA & OR), Ashley Mocorro Powell, and Bennington College student, Ian Reid, on a project to promote and address diversity, equity and inclusion in the Pacific Northwest outdoors–including national parks, public lands, and representation in outdoor recreation.
This Thursday February 9th, we are hosting a FREE screening of An American Ascent, a film documenting the first Black climbing team ascent of Denali in celebration of National Black & African American History Month. The screening will be followed by creatively-grounded discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion in our parks and storytelling.
The event is accessible and reachable by public transit. For those of you wanting to carpool or drive you can pay for UW Seattle Campus evening parking rates or street parking.
Thanks to your UW partners at the Intellectual House and UW Chapter of Advancing Hispanics/Chicanos & Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) and Seattle University’s Outdoor Adventure Recreation Program
