Wild Diversity

You are welcome here.

In: Community >

Wild Diversity is a nonprofit organization that aims to help create a personal connection to the outdoors for Black, Indigenous, all People of Color (BIPOC) & the LGBTQ2S+ communities, through outdoor adventures and education.

To welcome and create a sense of belonging in the outdoors for the BIPOC & LGBTQ+ communities. We host outdoor adventures, provide outdoor education, and facilitate community workshops.

Mercy’s drive to form Wild Diversity came from the desire to support a robust community of POC & Queer outdoorists and be an architect of much needed change for diversity in the outdoor industry. They want a welcoming and safe place for their communities to thrive. Mercy not only wants to diversify the outdoors, they want to diversify the activities that folks do in the outdoors.

Mercy has over 15 years in community leadership as an educator and facilitator directly serving community. They have also traveled to over a dozen countries training and leading workshops as a roller derby coach to empower women to realize their potential. They bring that passion to the Wild Diversity community and are proud to be a part of community growth.
