Allies

Next 100 Colorado Allies are individuals or organizations who support Next 100 Colorado's work but do not have the bandwidth to participate as formal members and/or do not meet the membership criteria as an individual or organization. Allyship is a verb, not a fixed label, but we are interested in prospective Allies demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the outdoors. Before participating in Next 100 Colorado working groups, project efforts, and events, individuals and representatives of organizations must meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate personal commitment to racial justice through self-work. This could mean attending some sort of training(s) related to race, power, and privilege; self-work through online resources, books, films, podcasts, etc.; or other experiences that demonstrate introspection related to race, power, and privilege. Prospective allies will be asked to talk about the work they’ve done. 

  • Attend an in-person meeting or event for Next 100 Colorado; roundtables happen at least twice per year and other events occur throughout the year. Next 100 Colorado-organized roundtables may include a DEI training and, if so, would satisfy the first criteria as well.

  • Support Next 100 Colorado financially. Individuals should contribute a minimum of $25 per year and organizations should contribute a minimum of $250. Next 100 Colorado Allies are expected to donate more if they are able to do so.
