Race is a social construct.

Racism is a system.

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.

If you’d like to get involved in Diverse Fort Collins, see the Welcome message for volunteer opportunities. All welcome!
