Justice for
Black Coloradans

We know the lasting effects of slavery and ongoing and systematic racism continue to negatively impact Black Coloradans. Working with Justice for Black Coloradans, the Colorado State Legislature introduced SB24-053 – a racial equity study to quantify the inequalities experienced by Black Coloradans. We need your support to pass this momentous bill.

About Us

The lasting effects of slavery and ongoing and systematic racism continue to negatively impact Black Coloradans and communities in tangible, material ways. These racist roots have led Black Coloradans to be wrongfully subjected to government-backed redlining, disparities in educational access, inequitable health care, a lack of economic mobility and inability to build generational wealth, police brutality, a broken criminal justice system and more.

These systematic racial disparities have impacted Black Coloradans over generations and have led to a reality where nearly half of Black families are considered low-income. Studies have shown, however, that working to reduce racial disparities benefits society and all communities and leads to greater economic vitality and stability and builds the workforce. In fact, national research shows that closing the racial wealth gap could increase GDP from 4 to 6 percent.
