Why Voting Matters

On August 18th, 1920 the Nineteenth Amendment of the US Constitution was ratified, granting women the right to vote. Though it granted this right, there were still many barriers in place preventing Black and Native American women the ability to vote.

Making the Outdoors Sustainable for All

Have you ever thought that the outdoor industry is free of discrimination? After all, it is supposed to be “for all the people” regardless of our race, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, ability, weight, or socio-economic status.

The Power of Your Mind

Growing up I was an incredibly active child. I spent my summers hiking and my winters skiing. When I wasn’t in the mountains, I was either running, playing soccer, basketball, or really any sport I could find. Up until the time I was 18 I never thought much about fitness or its relationship with food, it all just came naturally.
