as a catalyst for protest
and a clarion call for
equality. I have a sense
of deja vu because
we did this four years
ago-I reported on it;
the clips are still live.
The old way is not
working. We have to
do something different. So how can we
sustain momentum in
order to bring about
real change?
When situations
like this arise, I think
about advice from
literary titan Toni
Morrison; she
instructs us to do what we can from
where we are. So, I want you to think
about this question: What can I do
with what I have?
Sometimes that will mean passing the mic to someone else, as The
Weekly has done here. We have to
continue to do that very thing-not
just to me, but to other people of
color in the outdoors so that readers can experience our perspective-what we love, what we're
anxious about, and what needs to
change in order to create a more
equitable space.
This is not the last you'll see of me
in the pages of this magazine. From
now on, my main goal as a member
of this staff will be to elevate voices
from which we rarely hear, in a bid
to get you to listen and consider what
they have to say and process how we
can implement everyone's suggestions. I hope you will be willing to do
that too-it is the only way I see that
we can move forward.

What Can I Do?
I AM GOING TO SAY THEIR NAMES

first: Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tony McDade. The
events of the last month have left me
unmoored. Our country is on fire.
You might be wondering: How
does what is going on in the streets
pertain to Outdoor Retailer? The
way I see it? Everything.
For years, I've made it my business to travel the country telling the
stories of the disenfranchised. I was
in Flint. I saw and cataloged the
systemic issues that led to Standing Rock. I work on the staff of The
Daily at Outdoor Retailer because I
saw the same things in the outdoor
industry that I saw reporting those
stories: income inequality, racism,
sexism, and policy choices that have
life-altering consequences for people
with little recourse.
At this moment, the lens is focused
on police violence, but the larger systemic, unrelenting unequal treatment
of Black people got us here. Police
brutality is just a symptom. The
dearth of people of color in the outdoor industry is another symptom.
I don't want to do this anymore-
watch someone die in high-definition
