Learn alongside other Colorado leaders, advocates, and community partners.
Every September, we hold our annual fundraising luncheon, which is an opportunity to learn about important health and health care issues, connect with leaders from around the state, and contribute to the future of Center for Health Progress. Each year we feature a national expert, honor community champions, and provide an opportunity to make a donation, if you’d like to support our work.

Race is a major factor in determining health outcomes, which is why we’re focusing on racial equity for our 2017 fundraising luncheon. We cannot achieve health equity without addressing the racial inequities within our systems and institutions and the many structural barriers that limit a person’s ability to succeed. We hope you’ll join us for this powerful conversation.
Rinku Sen is the President and Executive Director of Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation and the Publisher of the award-winning news site Colorlines. Sen is one of the leading voices in the racial justice movement, building upon the legacy of civil rights by transforming the way we talk about race, from something that is individual, intentional, and overt to something that is systemic, unconscious, and hidden. Rinku is the author of Stir it Up and The Accidental American: Immigration and Citizenship in the Age of Globalization, Co-Chair of the Schott Foundation for Public Education, and sits on the boards of Hedgebrook and Working America. Sen received a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Brown University and an M.S. in Journalism at Columbia University.
