Diverse Fort Collins
Diverse Fort Collins is a volunteer-driven community project advocating for antiracism and racial equity. We connect people with resources and each other.
Let’s co-create an inclusive community!
We advocate for racial equity in our community by connecting people with resources and each other through the website and book/podcast/film discussions.
The Advisory Committee comprises many facets of our community, and collaborates with the Executive Director on strategic planning and programming.
You Can Make a Difference
Giving online has never been more secure, convenient or hassle-free. Your gift helps cover expenses and supports lively programming that responds to the needs of our community.
Get involved today. Sign up to volunteer and you will join a group of change-makers, a network helping to dismantle systemic racism in our community through education and awareness.
Read, grow, and make new friends in the process. Attend FREE Spanish Conversation Groups (beginning, and intermediate to advanced) and reasonably-priced classes for all levels.
