Heading to Cho Oyu basecamp today (16,400 ft./5000m). For this trip, I wanted to push myself to bring a different narrative to how we approach mountaineering and use this expedition as an opportunity to talk about inclusivity and allyship. As I’ve grown as an activist, I’ve come to realize that social and environmental issues are related, and that how we treat people is how we treat the planet. I feel it’s more important than ever to speak up about inclusivity and diversity to create a more resilient environmental movement. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be highlighting friends I’ve met who have challenged my point of view, helped me grow and who are evolving our perceptions of who belongs in the mountains. Stay tuned for more… #MountainsAreForEveryone
