Our Partners

Part of what has allowed us to be effective as an organization is the groups and people that we collaborate with. We are part of a much larger movement and we recognize that there are other groups that do work that isn’t necessarily in our wheelhouse, but that we support nonetheless. Check out these great organizations for information, resources, and other ways to get involved.

 

Black Lives Matter 5280

“Working with residents and organizations in Denver, Black Lives Matter 5280 builds more loving and united Black communities while eliminating anti-Black violence and racism. To expose, address, and eradicate structural oppression in Denver, BLM5280 uses a holistic racial justice approach that strengthens health and wellness, community building, educational programming, economic sustainability, and direct action strategizing. This approach to racial equity is fortified by a commitment to economic justice—one that counters the ongoing effects of slavery and the continuous exploitation of Black labor, while challenging white supremacy. Our chapter is part of a national movement, aligned in Black love, power, and liberation, embodying the declaration that Black Lives Matter–regardless of gender identity, gender expression, sexual identity, immigration status or location, gang affiliation, profession, ability, economic status, and religious beliefs or disbelief. Also keeping with the national movement, BLM5280 centers and celebrates the lives and leadership of Black women and girls. We firmly believe that communal visions of liberation are the way forward into a beloved society that affirms gender equality, racial equity, and social justice. Our work is to cultivate communities of abundant joy where all Black people are emboldened and empowered to lead, love, heal, and thrive.”

Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition

“Founded in 1999, the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate the overuse of the criminal justice system and advance community health and safety. We are people convicted of crime, survivors of crime, and the families and allies of both. We advocate and organize for public safety strategies that are more holistic, effective and just.”

Colorado Jobs With Justice

“Colorado Jobs with Justice is a long-term, formal coalition of labor, community, faith, and student and youth organizations that come together to advance workers’ rights and social justice through building sustained relationships and taking direct action to create concrete change in the lives of working families. We are one of the oldest of the more than forty local, autonomous chapters of the Jobs with Justice network, which has a twenty-five year history of fighting for working families and their communities. Across the network, Jobs with Justice works on a range of issues from labor law reform to healthcare, from organizing campaigns to immigrant rights. In Colorado, we focus on those places where other social justice issues overlap with economic justice.”
