Brainstorm: How do we make Outdoor Activities more Accessible to Children of Color in Madison?
Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015
100State
30 W. Mifflin Street, 6th floor (Next to Veterans Museum)
Free and open to the public

Family and Community Wellness is one of five goals of Our Madison Plan, Justified Anger’s response to racial disparities in Madison. We know that getting kids active in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, birdwatching and skiing, lowers anxieties, helps with academics, and facilitates lifelong health. Join Diane Schwartz, founder of Get Kids Outside to brainstorm ways to get Madison’s youth of color engaged in the outdoors. What are the barriers? What do we need to succeed? How can we make Madison’s abundant natural beauty and resources available to all. Please come and share your ideas. Please sign up for this event via Facebook or email Diane at getkidsoutside@gmail.com.
