1. Common Ground: Diversity, Inclusion and the Future of Our Public Lands

WHERE: Center for the Arts
WHEN: November 2, 2017 from 7:00 - 9:00 PM

Morgan Dixon and James Q Martin present the titular film program, which addresses a unified movement in the name of protecting public lands in our country. The effort was born of their meeting and sparking a friendship at 2016's SHIFT, leading to ongoing discussions around the topics of race and recreation involving the outdoors. Morgan is the co-founder of GirlTrek, the D.C. based national non-profit that offers support and inspiration to African American women and girls interested in healthy lifestyles predicated on the simple joy and fulfillment of walking. Q is a climber, filmmaker, and conservationist, as well as the founder of the production house Q Media. He is dedicated to the documentation of people across multiple walks of artistic, athletic, and scientific life all with an eye toward and a passion for conservation on both a local and global scale. Preceding the film program will be the 2017 SHIFT Awards, recognizing national work with a positive impact on gains in conservation. 

2. Closing Keynote Presentation: Angelou Ezeilo

WHERE: Snow King Resort
WHEN: November 3, 2017 from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The founder and CEO of Greening Youth Foundation (GYF), Angelou Ezeilo, has focused on utilizing diversity to help communities work toward common goals of conservation.  Through her work with the GYF, Angelou has helped young people of color find important roles in the ongoing effort to take responsibility for protecting shared resources.  Her belief that outdoor recreation and communal conservation can lead to increased and improved management of public lands is indicative of her larger goal of shifting cultural awareness of who can and should take advantage of the beauty of precious public lands.
