What is Colour the Trails? 

We are a collective of BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ adventure seekers. We are the radical YES people. We are the visionaries, the intersectional environmentalists, the world shakers, and community builders.

We advocate for inclusive representation in outdoor spaces, working with brand partners, businesses, and organizations to break barriers and create accessibility. We subsidize outdoor adventures, create diverse content, and are actively working with our allies to create the change we want to see in the world.

Colour the Trails is a socially conscious business rooted in collective community well-being. We operate a business model that focuses on social change, sharing our success with our local and global communities.

A bit of History

As a community based social business, our work is rooted in social justice. There is a lack of representation in the outdoor world; we aim to radically amplify BIPOC stories and voices. We started Colour The Trails as a form of reclamation, a way to take up space; where everyone is welcome. We are a bridge of emotional, social, and physical safety between the BIPOC community and the grand outdoors.

We hold allies accountable, we work with businesses and organizations to continue doing the work in the life-long journey of Anti-Racism.

Meet Judith Kasiama

Judith is a content creator, and a community activist who resides on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.

Through adventures and travel, Judith highlights her experience as a black woman who bikes, skis, hikes, camps, climbs, and explores. A former refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, she was raised in South Africa, Australia, The United States and Canada. Judith’s unique upbringing allows her to draw from diverse experiences and cultures.

Judith’s active participation in the outdoors brings to light the importance of representation. Through conversation and grace her work draws attention to underrepresented minorities by changing the narrative that people of colour are not active participants in the outdoors. Judith is a fellow at the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. She is the founder of Colour the Trails, a community group that focuses on getting Black, Indigenous and People of Colour out  in nature. Judith believes nature is for everyone.
