GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION

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.

Diverse Fort Collins is your website for resources and community—all things related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

GET INVOLVED

The website will feature links to resources, businesses, community organizations and events (including upcoming book group discussions. See the Events page for details here).

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.
