About NUHOC

The Northeastern University Huskiiers and Outing Club is the outdoors club at Northeastern University in Boston Massachusetts

Here are some informative posts about whiteness in the outdoors.

Hello NUHOC!

As a member of NUHOC, I have loved getting the chance to get outdoors and experience the White Mountains of New Hampshire. In this time of social upheaval, I think it’s really important to be aware of the way whiteness and privilege can affect the outdoor community. These are some resources that I found helpful. If anyone has suggestions or resources to share about how we can ensure that NUHOC is a responsible, supportive, and open community to all, I would love to see them.

Go to our page, diversity in the outdoors, for more resources.

WHITENESS IN THE OUTDOORS. I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now and the recent events in the news, specifically the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a black man hunted down by two white men on a jog led me to spend the past few days listening and learning from people of color, specifically African Americans in the outdoors. . This post is my attempt as an imperfect white person with privilege to take action and encourage other white people to do the same because there’s no “outdoors for all” when racism exists. As a white person, I can’t speak to the unique experiences of marginalized groups surrounding race, so this is my attempt to amplify the voices of POC in the outdoors. . Thank you for reading. I’m always seeking to improve my skill of allyship as I’m not an expert in this and I am open to constructive feedback. . SHARE- Feel free to share, but if you do, please tag the people of color you see mentioned on each page as this is information compiled by me but told by them. . SAVE- Please don’t just read this once and move on but save this as a resource to come back to and reread. . CHALLENGE- read and then reread and then comment a friend, an outdoor leader, sponsored athlete or brand you think would benefit from seeing this too. .
