Idaho Woman Works To Make Outdoor Spaces More Inclusive
We Are Idaho is an ongoing series of stories from Boise State Public Radio featuring Idahoans from all walks of life telling their own stories, in their own words. In this episode, Jesse Levin tells us what it’s like to be a Black woman navigating Idaho’s outdoor recreation space — a space that isn’t always welcoming to people of color.
Levin helped plan last year’s vigil at the Idaho State Capitol after the police killing of George Floyd. After the gathering, Levin and other organizers founded Inclusive Idaho, a nonprofit promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the state. Levin is the group’s director of policy and education. She’s trying to make natural spaces welcoming to all.
