Race is a social construct.

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

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 and upcoming book group discussions. All welcome!
