Birding: A Multiplier for Liberation and Justice

April 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm


Birds and people share ecosystems and resources, from the city to the country, from coast to coast, and everywhere in between. In a similar way, the injustices faced by people, especially Black and Brown communities, also impact birds, both in people’s freedom to enjoy them and in the science we use to conserve them. Join ornithologist Corina Newsome as she shares how birds launched her career in wildlife conservation, the way justice for people improves conservation for birds, and how birds have been a vehicle for liberation and justice, as demonstrated through the Black Birders Movement.
