People of the Global Majority in the Outdoors, Nature, and Environment

We are a nonprofit organization established for BIPOC individuals to gather, learn, heal, and collaborate on US-based environmental movements—charting a path toward environmental justice and collective liberation.

What does “People of the Global Majority” mean?

Over 80% of the world’s population identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color. Collectively, we are

People of the Global Majority.

We use ‘People of the Global Majority’ (PGM) interchangeably with ‘BIPOC’ as an empowering and validating phrase that challenges the inaccurate euphemism ‘minority’.
