About the Race & Civic Engagement Project

InIn 2021 the Colorado Black Health Collaborative (CBHC) received grant funding from the Colorado Health Foundation for a 2-year racism project. The project involved a series of discussions with the Black Community around racism/ structural racism, with the ultimate goal of moving our communities to become more civically engaged.
