Statement by Vice President Murray on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

As Vice President of the California Fish and Game Commission, I stand against racism, white supremacy, violence against Black communities, and the silencing of marginalized communities.

I applaud the work of organizations like Outdoor Afro, Brown Girl Surf, Textured Waves, Black Girl Surf, HECHO, Latino Outdoors and Latinx Marinos, who are connecting people of color, increasing access to outdoor experiences, and changing the face of conservation. I was inspired by the inaugural Black Birders Week that took place earlier this month. And I celebrate the work of hunting and fishing organizations who are dedicated to increasing representation of Black and Latinx outdoorspeople, while tearing down stereotypes and barriers to participation. I recognize and see the stewardship work that Tribes throughout California have done since time immemorial and am invigorated by the newly formed Tribal Marine Stewards Network.
