Fairfax County NAACP

Fairfax County NAACP supports greater equity and opportunity for BiPOC students in Fairfax County, VA. In 2022, Calleva & the NAACP’s Fairfax Chapter created a joint project: Connecting the Community with Nature. Working with local community centers, this program provided access to safe, educational & empowering outdoor recreation to children ages 9-15 who live in communities with very limited opportunities to engage with nature. The grant-funded program taught Leave No Trace principles to students as they explored the creeks & forests that feed the Potomac River.
