Creating a safe space for BIPOC and underrepresented individuals in the nomadic community
nomads + vanlifers + land protectors
Welcome To The Community!
Breathe easy, friends. This platform is a place of safety, created to intentionally celebrate and empower road travelers and outdoorists living at the intersections and taking up space in the margins.
show up as your full, authentic self
Our growing community of Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx, and people of color at all intersections, exploded in response to the lack of representation in road travel and outdoor media. Performative inclusivity only creates more barriers to entry. Like Black lives, authenticity matters.
shift the narrative
Diversify Vanlife is a platform that redefines community in the outdoors by celebrating diversity and intersectionality. People from all walks of life deserve to feel seen and heard. We produce curated content, living resources and engaging events for underrepresented peoples whose voices and stories need to be amplified.
As part of the community, I pledge to:
— Actively work to create inclusive, safe spaces, both outdoor and virtual, for equal-access adventure, exploration, conversation, and community
— Speak up against racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, hateful speech and all other forms of injustice
— Intentionally listen to and amplify BIPOC and underrepresented voices and leadership
— Respect the spaces created by and for BIPOC and other marginalized peoples
— Proactively learn about cultures, identities, communities, land, and Indigenous history while unlearning habits and beliefs that perpetuate conflict, violence, and discrimination against marginalized peoples
— Commit to minimizing my negative environmental impact
— Hold community members and myself accountable to continued growth, learning, and positive action
— Exert my road travel presence with respect for: the land, wildlife, communities, other travelers, and my own body and spirit”
