What we're about
This a group for WOC (Women of Color) hikers in the Bay Area. This includes cis, gay, straight, non-binary and trans women, and anyone who identifies as a woman of color.
I started this group to meet other outdoorsy women of color who like to hike! Being an avid hiker and backpacker, I have often found that POCs (and especially WOC) aren't well-represented in the outdoors, and I'd like to do what I can to change that by giving WOC a safe space to hike and experience the outdoors.
If you also like happy hours and brunch, and discussing current events/social justice (and maybe even discussing current events/social justice over happy hour or brunch), we'll probably do some of that too!
Hikes will take place primarily in Marin, Peninsula, East and South Bay. All skill levels welcome.
