The Oregon Birding Association joins other birding and conservation organizations across the country in condemning the racism that endangers the lives of people of color in the United States as they go birding or just go about their daily lives. We urge our members and our community to educate themselves about what we can all do to make birding and the outdoors safer and more welcoming for everyone.
