WHO WE ARE

Diverse Fort Collins is a volunteer-driven community project advocating for antiracism and racial equity.

We connect people with resources and each other.

We’re developing this website for resources and community—all things related to antiracism, racial equity, diversity, and inclusion—and hosting events such as book and panel discussions, webinars, and workshops to cultivate friendships and increased understanding among community members.

Read more in the founder’s Welcome message.

Let’s co-create an inclusive community!

Race is a social construct.

“Racism is a system, not an event.”- J. Kēhaulani Kauanui

Call to Action

Let’s work together to dismantle institutional and systemic racism by educating ourselves with articles, books, discussions; speaking at public forums and to our elected officials; and making an effort to become acquainted with people from diverse backgrounds and expand our social circles.

It’s up to each of us to co-create the community we want to live in.


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)
