Inclusivity / Sensitivity / Community

handshakesFort Collins should be a great place to live—for everyone.

We believe Fort Collins has the potential to be a truly great place to live for all people. We believe that the best parts of our city should be equally accessible by all members of our community. I Am Fort Collins initiatives will work to intentionally broaden our community’s understanding of difference, increase our capacity for compassion, and drive development in a universal or inclusive manner. We will do this through partnerships, communication, and the sharing of resources.

Our committee met with the purpose of brainstorming activities that could achieve our goals of broadening inclusivity in our community.  We hosted a weekly DiverCity Cafe throughout the winter and spring of 2013 to reach out to new participants and include more voices.

We had conversations with many local groups and institutions, including our local newspapers, to learn about and share ways of promoting stories of inclusivity

Intangible impacts include community-building within our committee and Cafe’ participants and the development of project ideas that can be implemented in the future.

Much thanks to all who participated and those who work to make Fort Collins a great place to live for everyone.
