Statement Against Racism & Hate

in the Outdoors


Statement Against Racism and Hate in the Outdoors


Colorado Mountain Club explicitly condemns racism, hate, and all systems and behavior that erode the safety of the Black Community, Indigenous Peoples, and other Communities of Color.

Incidences of hate and racism in the outdoors are not isolated to Ahmaud Arbery running in Georgia or Christian Cooper birding in New York City’s Central Park. All over the country––including right here in Colorado––people of color disproportionately face suspicion, unprovoked confrontations, and other dangers in the outdoors solely because of the color of their skin.

We must educate ourselves & our community, and work to ensure that the Black Community, Indigenous Community, & other Communities of Color have equitable access to, and feel safe and welcome recreating in Colorado's outdoors.


Criminal Investigation Notice


On March 18, 2021, officers from the Golden Police Department arrested former employee, Chun Chiang, on a number of charges, including egregious privacy violations of adult women in our building. 

Additionally, Mr. Chiang is charged with illegally accessing the CMC’s website and database. To protect our members, we use third-party systems for processing credit card information, and there is no evidence that such information has been compromised.

The Colorado Mountain Club is a tight-knit community built on shared values and trust. Our colleagues who may have been victimized are our first and foremost concern. 

We are appalled and disgusted by the actions of the suspect and are cooperating with police and prosecutors in this case.

Our values and mission-driven culture are not limited to the outdoors—we also endeavor to create safe and inclusive spaces for all our employees, volunteers, members, and partners. We are committed to providing an environment free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment and other crimes against members of our community. We abide by a comprehensive Code of Conduct, and we enforce a no-tolerance policy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Executive Director Keegan Young at or our Director of Operations and Finance Jacob McCracken at We appreciate your support and respect for our team’s time to process these events during this trying time for the CMC.
