Equity & Justice

“The National Wildlife Federation is at the beginning of a long but essential journey to become an anti-racist organization that champions belonging, where we bring people from all backgrounds together to do big things for communities and wildlife. While schools—as a key part of our communities—play an essential role in advancing conservation work, there are significant impediments, including racial inequity throughout the education system and unsafe access to the outdoors.

"NWF commits to actively working against these barriers and providing youth the resources, tools, and opportunities they need to become the next generation of conservationists. Our educational programming is beginning a transformational journey to connect students, teachers, and parents to equitable nature-based experiences where all youth belong and can be connected with nature early and often in their lives."

- Chanté Coleman, Vice President of Equity and Justice
