Looking for group that support Black hikers in/around Kansas City

I have been following #blackbirdersweek and #blackhikers week and am looking for any local groups working with awareness and inclusivity in the outdoors. I would love to get involved, especially with women/kids.

@kcapper so glad to have you here in the community - it would be helpful to know where you're located so we, and other community members, can start making some recommendations and connections!

At REI, we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived.

Sorry - to clarify, I am not black. I am looking for ways to help positivity in the outdoors in my community. I am in the Kansas City area.

@kcapper in case you hadn't seen it, we recently posted an article on how to support organizations working toward a more inclusive outdoor community; there are a bunch of non-profits listed (with more being added) that you could reach out to and see which, if any, have a local Kansas City chapter or affiliation. Hope this helps!

@kcapper yes, where are you located?  I would suggest meetup.com for groups of all sorts of like-minded folks, all sorts of interests.
