Fast forward to April of this year, and after months of preparation and emotional, psychological, and physical unpaid labor and exhaustion, the coalition decided it was going to be firm in their fight and call on their community to back them up. Last week, here at Terra Incognita Media, we received an email from our beloved siblings about all of this and were immediately on board to do whatever we can to support.
Here’s where you, dear family, come into play…

As an able-bodied, neurotypical, upper-middle class, cis white woman, I know this is the LEAST I can do to act in solidarity with my BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ siblings who have been harmed and are now facing health risks, death threats, and career consequences. Now is the time to act and posting on social media is EASY.
You can also reach out to any of the members of the coalition, thank them for their tireless unpaid labor, and send them a donation for fighting for a safer environment in the outdoor industry for ALL of us.
I hope you’ll join us in #WontTakeSHIFTAnymore!!
With you in care and solidarity,
Co-conspirator, Terra Incognita Media
