New America Media invites you to an ethnic media briefing on the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service:
AMERICA'S PUBLIC LANDS: HOW DIVERSE, HOW INCLUSIVE?
Results of first-ever national poll of African Americans, Asian Americans and Latino Americans Conducted by Bendixen & Amandi.
August 25 marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, which oversees America’s National Parks - places like Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Muir Woods. While celebrated for their role in protecting America’s air, water, and natural and cultural heritage, studies show low attendance rates by communities of color. Learn how African Americans, Asian Americans and Latino voters view public lands and what a new coalition of civil rights, environmental justice, conservation and community organizations (the Next 100 Coalition) are urging the White House to do to bring greater diversity and inclusion to these parks and other public lands like national forests, monuments and wildlife areas.
