Take action with OAK and REI Co-op to close the nature gap and get every kid outside.
OAK Week 2023 is happening on May 9-11. You can get involved by sharing a postcard and making your voice heard. Find more details on how to do so below:
1. Snap, Share & Follow
In REI stores across the country, we are collecting postcards to hand deliver to Congress during OAK Week. You can join in by downloading this card and telling us why you like to get outside, sharing it with us on social media with the tags #OAKWeek and #CooperativeAction.
Here’s an example of what you can caption your photo on social media:
Hey Congress, help kids like me get outside by passing the Outdoors For All Act and Transit to Trails Act, and supporting $25 million for the Every Kid Outdoors program. #OAKWeek #CooperativeAction
To watch us deliver the postcards, as well as to see all the amazing programming and youth advocacy we have planned for OAK Week, follow the tags #OAKWeek and #CooperativeAction.
2. Make Your Voice Heard!
Take action with the REI Cooperative Action Network and tell Congress to:
- Pass the Outdoors For All Act to support new trails, green spaces, playgrounds, cultural gathering spaces, and more in communities that need them most.
- Pass the Transit to Trails Act to help everybody reach our trails and public lands more easily and accessibly.
- Fund the Every Kid Outdoors program, which provides every U.S. 4th grader with free entry to our national parks and public lands with their families.
