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.

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 as they explore, live nomadically, and break into outdoor activities or nomadic lifestyles that are commonly whitewashed or glamorized according to euro-centric standards.
We produce curated, BIPOC-centered content, living resources, genuine connection, and engaging events for underrepresented peoples whose voices, stories, and questions need to be amplified.
Our work gives BIPOC visibility and a real identity in the context of outdoor activities and vanlife, and changes the stereotypes that could hurt and prevent a non-white individual from accessing nature reconnection, education, connections, and fulfillment in life.
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”
