Supporting Partner Organizations are primarily outdoor and public lands organizations who are committing to participate in Vámonos Outside in the long-term. Recognizing that Latinx outdoor engagement requires outdoor organizations to shift the ways they are engaging with communities, Vámonos Outside seeks to foster long-term partnerships with a core group of outdoor organizations. These organizations have goals that align with the goals of Vámonos Outside, and are partnering with Vámonos Outside to works towards achieving these goals.
