Appalachian Mountain Club

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion


Our Mission: The purpose of the DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Committee is ‘to bring social justice outdoors’ for the AMC NY/NoJ Chapter. We are committed to expanding our membership and advancing new leadership for those not historically represented by outdoor clubs. We are funding scholarships for families, gear and skills classes. And, we are building bridges across committees and other chapters while we form external collaborations with local schools, colleges and other outdoor clubs. While we are most recently inspired by Black Lives Matter and the disparities in wellbeing made clear by Covid-19, we are committed to being accountable to historical legacies of bias and discrimination. Above all, we aim to realize the club’s mission Be Outdoors for everyone! Reach us at: dei@amc-ny.org
