The Resilient Activist is honored to be a collaborator with the Kansas City Conservation Equity Network (KCCEN).

  • KCCEN Purpose Statement:  We are a network that connects, inspires, and empowers the conservation community in the Kansas City region to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in all our work.
  • KCCEN Vision:  Just as biodiversity strengthens natural systems, the diversity of human experience strengthens our conservation efforts for the benefit of nature and all human beings.  The Kansas City regional conservation community represents and reflects that human diversity, embracing it in all communities where we work, and our work to benefit communities and achieve conservation goals. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are an important focus for The Resilient Activist. We know how disproportionately communities of color and low incomes are impacted by climate change and environmental destruction, and we recognize the emotional impact this has on all stakeholders. 

We offer programming that addresses this emotional impact within the intersection of race, equity, social justice, and the health of the planet.

Our intent to join with KCCEN is to be in closer contact with more diverse communities, have an opportunity to collaborate in educating ourselves about DEI issues in our community, and to assist us in creating supportive programming to provide resilience to those who are impacted most.
