Outdoor spaces are often places of solace for many Americans, particularly during time of great stress, as evidenced by the COVID-19 pandemic. But like many things, there is an inequality for many Americans because not everybody has equal access to these outdoor and green spaces. And even when they do, they are often times made to feel like they are unwelcome. In the first edition in a two-part series, we examine the barriers often faced by people of color preventing them from having equal access to outdoor green spaces like city, state, or national parks. We also introduce Next 100 Colorado, which brings together leaders of color to address those barriers.
