Social Justice Educator
Darcy Ottey is Co-Coordinator of Youth Passageways, a diverse network of individuals, organizations, and communities all working to support the initiation of young people into mature adulthood in these transition times. As an initiated European-American woman (British/Ukrainian descent), she is interested in the relationship between increasing disconnect from the natural world, and ongoing structures of oppression, particularly those based on race and ethnicity. She is particularly focused on the role inheritors of race-based privilege can have in interrupting cycles of oppression and helping to create truly thriving communities and ecosystems. Darcy has worked with a variety of nature-based youth organizations as both rite of passage practitioner and administrator. She holds an M.A. in Environment and Community from Antioch University Seattle.
