Who we are:

We are a group of triathletes and swimmers associated with Tri Team PDX, who in the wake of the Black Lives Matters nationwide conversation, rose to action. Our consultation on our potential action focused on the epidemic of drowning within the Black Community. Our Black Swimming initiative seeks to expand meaningful participation in water sports by providing a strong sense of belonging for black athletes of all backgrounds, abilities, and lifestyles by supporting safe and accessible water safety and swimming instruction.
