Celebrating Nonprofits Committed to Equity and Justice
Across Colorado, nonprofit organizations play a vital role in advancing health equity and racial justice. From providing crucial services to advocating for the needs of their communities, nonprofits work hard to remove barriers to health. Their impact touches the lives of many across our state and contributes immeasurably to building a stronger and healthier Colorado.
We are inspired by and grateful for this hard work. This is why we proudly continue our annual tradition of selecting Colorado-based nonprofits to receive a $10,000 holiday donation, recognizing them for their commitment to advancing equity and justice.
Please join us as we congratulate this year’s recipients:
- Andrea's No Cost Food Market: Andrea's No Cost Food Market is a community-based, outdoor, no-cost and no-questions food market and resource hub in Denver’s Villa Park neighborhood that provides high-quality, fresh foods and prepared meals for seniors, unhoused neighbors and anyone in need.
- It Takes a Village Inc.: It Takes a Village, Inc. (ITAV) seeks to reduce health disparities among people of color in the Denver metro region by providing walk-in, free-of-charge programs and services.
- Loudspeaker Public Media: Loudspeaker Public Media is an LGBTQIA-led, nonprofit listener-supported public radio service and production studio dedicated to amplifying the voices, stories, and artistic expressions of underserved communities.
These organizations are just three examples of nonprofits promoting and implementing solutions to the problems their communities face. As 2023 comes to a close, I want to thank all of you for your tireless efforts to make Colorado a place where everyone – no matter their identity, socioeconomic status or geographic location – has the power to be healthy.
We wish you a safe and healthy holiday season.
