Blackwaters Event Sponsorship Information



Thank you for stopping in to read about sponsorship opporuites for the Balckwaters Event


The Greater Boston Chapter of Trout Unlimited would greatly appreciate your sponsorship for this event which should resonate with your organization's values and commitment to community engagement. The event will focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the community. We anticipate this event will draw a diverse audience, bringing together individuals and invited BIPOC nonprofits (i.e., Latino Outdoors, Elevate Youth) who share a passion for conservation and the outdoors.


Our organization is dedicated to promoting the conservation and responsible use of coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. We are proud of our work in fostering a sense of community among conservation anglers and enthusiasts. At the core of our mission is the belief that the outdoors should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background. We are committed to ensuring that all individuals have the opportunity to enjoy, recreate, and restore themselves in our natural surroundings. 


To further this commitment, we are excited to host a special event with the screening of the Blackwaters film that explores the beauty and significance of our natural waterways. This film, directed by Chad Brown and edited by Dudley Edmondson, not only captures the essence of our conservation challenges but also highlights the importance of inclusion and diversity in outdoor activities. 



The film will be followed by an in-person panel discussion with Director Chad Brown and Editor Dudley Edmondson and the other 4 cast members in the film. The panel session encompasses the power of five Black men whose paths have been challenged with loss, defeat, fear, and pain by life’s ups and downs and social injustice challenges black men and black boys face every day. The next day we plan a fly-casting/fly-tying clinic to extend our learning and sense of belonging.
