HUBitual Learning & Outreach (HUBLO)

Window Rock, Arizona

HUBitual Learning and Outreach (HUBLO) was founded in 2022 in Window Rock, AZ, the capital of the Navajo Nation. Uranium mining has left a legacy of contaminated land, water, and air – and a tremendous environmental and health burden on the community. The mission of HUBitual Learning and Outreach is to provide a community hub for personal and professional development initiatives, innovative micro-projects, environmental stewardship, and community outreach. Its first initiative, Southwest Environmental Stewards, seeks to recruit groups across the southwest US to leverage resources and provide support for community-based initiatives in climate and environmental justice. Historically, financial support has primarily gone to state, county, city, or tribal projects without a strong focus on community engagement. This initiative would bring groups together, establishing collaborative action items to ensure project viability and progress.

Operating mostly within the Navajo Nation, in a ten-mile range of Window Rock and Fort Defiance, the organization motivates youth and young adults to take the initiative in creating the society they hope to see. This is accomplished through micro-projects that aim towards the three objectives of environmental stewardship, community outreach, and expression of the arts. HUBLO is composed of a three-person leadership team with collectively more than 15 years of community and youth outreach experience, three youth interns, and a volunteer team of eleven. HUBLO also utilizes connections with local governments and like-minded organizations such as the Semilla Project, the Navajo Nation Zoo and Botanical Park, the Navajo Nation Climate Program, and the Fort Defiance Chapter House. Through this coalition, HUBLO combines local environmental revitalization projects with opportunities for artistic expression.
