This session explores conservation history and how it fits into the larger context of American history of injustices. Exploring a timeline of events through the 19th and early 20th century, the session will reveal that despite their lofty goals, conservation legislation and early environmental movements were not benevolent and in fact harmed many communities, namely Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color across what is now the United States. The session will also highlight a few examples of how White-led conservation organizations have been changing and can change the arc of this history and engage in justice work in solidarity with those who have been most negatively impacted by conservation history. This webinar will be presented by The Avarna Group.
