Out & Back with Alison Mariella Désir

Alison Mariella Désir explores the Pacific Northwest with the change-makers who are reclaiming space, creating awareness and delivering access for the health and well-being of BIPOC communities in the region. Representation and diverse perspectives have long been missing from imagery and conversations concerning the outdoors. Diving into topics like the running boom, sundown towns, environmental racism, redlining, safety and representation, Alison examines the barriers between outdoor space and marginalized communities.
