Black Travel Alliance is a new group of Black Travel Content Creators from across the globe. Our three pillars of the community are alliance, amplification, and accountability. As travel authors, bloggers, broadcasters, journalists, photographers, podcasters, social media influencers, and vloggers, we unify to amplify. We also aim to provide training and business support to our members, as well as hold destinations and travel brands accountable on the issue of diversity in travel marketing and storytelling.

The 3 pillars of the Black Travel Alliance are: Alliance, Amplification, and Accountability.

During this talk Nadeen and Monet (two of the founding members of BTA) will discuss how using these 3 pillars will result in the Black Travel Alliance bringing together Black content creators from all over the world. We will amplify each other’s voices and hold the travel industry accountable to increasing Black content creators in campaigns and leadership positions.

They will also share how you can get involved with the BTA, whether you’re a creator or not, whether you’re Black or not.
