First things first: Land Acknowledgement
Colorado State University collaborated with students and staff of the Native American Cultural Center and the native community on a land acknowledgement for university events “as a statement of truth, gratitude and respect.”
Diverse Fort Collins appreciates this land acknowledgement and shares the link above as a show of support for efforts to advance racial justice, racial equity and racial healing.
WHO WE ARE
Diverse Fort Collins is a volunteer-driven community project that connects people with resources and each other.
We’re developing a website for resources and community—all things related to diversity, equity and inclusion—and hosting book discussions to cultivate friendships and increased understanding among community members.
Join us! Let’s co-create an inclusive community!

La obscuridad no puede combatir la obscuridad; sólo la luz puede hacerlo.
El odio no puede combatir el odio; sólo el amor puede hacerlo.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
—Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
