Vision: A more equitable and inclusive American environmental and outdoor movement where people of all racial and ethnic identities feel not only that they belong, but that they have the power to shape the vision for the future of our environment and outdoors.
Mission: PGM ONE convenes emerging and established professionals of the global majority who work in the environmental and outdoor movement to share, learn, collaborate, heal, celebrate, build community, find support, and sharpen their analysis of racial equity in their fields.
PGM ONE is a project of the Earth Island Institute. The Earth Island Institute's mission is to develop and support projects that counteract threats to the biological and cultural diversity that sustains the environment.
An intentionally grassroots effort, PGM ONE is informed and designed by participants based on four pillars:
CELEBRATE AND INSPIRE EACHOTHER
DISMANTLE SILOS AND BUILD COMMUNITY ACROSS IDENTITIES
HEAL FROM EXPERIENCES OF OTHERNESS AND EXCLUSION
EMPOWER EACH OTHER WITH TOOLS FOR CULTURE CHANGE
