Hunters of Color
Hunters of Color is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. They are the only nationwide hunting nonprofit led by BIPOC, for BIPOC. They are working on increasing BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participation in hunting for the sake of conservation, food sovereignty, and to preserve our ancestral traditions.
In August of 2020, HOC was founded by three friends: Jimmy Flatt, Thomas Tyner, and Lydia Parker. Their goal was to make "The Outdoors for Everyone." The trio saw a need for more inclusivity and equity in the hunting community based on their personal experiences and demographic statistics.
As hunters, we know how to do uncomfortable things. We have a big mountain to climb 'til we reach racial equity in hunting, but together, we know we can do anything. So lace up your boots and let's get to climbing!
