Grassroots organizing is a powerful tool in challenging oppressive systems.
We are providing access and tools to enhance the voice and leadership of Coloradans facing racism and poverty, and demanding space in the decision-making process for our communities to determine how the health care system should work. We are developing deep relationships among people and partners, and mobilizing our members and leaders to take action. Health justice must be a central focus in all systems and policies that affect our lives.
So, we are building a multicultural movement to hold the health care system and elected officials responsible for their role in making progress towards health justice and racial equity. We’re bringing people together to use our collective power to win improvements in people’s lives. We’re building a strong base of leaders who are ready to speak out against injustices, training advocates for change, and working on issues identified by the people most directly-impacted by them.
We share tools and knowledge with Coloradans who are directly affected by injustice so that we can collectively advocate for change. We pair grassroots organizing with leadership development to offer community members opportunities to build their skills and take meaningful action as leaders for health justice.
