About

DIVERSE FORT COLLINS

All Welcome!

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.

(One size does not fit all. Definition of health equity by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Definition of racial equity by the new Race Forward.)

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

The website will feature links to resources, community organizations and events (including a book group discussion on Oct. 27 leading up to the Fort Collins Reads event on Nov. 3).
