Liberation Through Our Relationships - for Youth of Color
How we interact with each other through our relationships is very important to our health and well-being - it can even be the basis for liberation and radical change!

This four-part series will guide youth of color through a process to understand:

• What liberation looks and feels like
• How white supremacy shows up in ourselves and others, and how to be in relationship differently
• A meaningful definition of love to guide all our interactions toward greater liberation

This series is designed and facilitated by Dr. Cori Wong, an intersectional feminist philosopher, speaker, educator with Positive Philosophy Consulting, and Fort Collins community member.

Huge thank you to the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery for letting us have our Black History Month event in their space. To learn more about the documentary we watched and discussed, please visit:


Young folks learning how to use our new camera


Join us Sunday, February 19th at Fort Collins Museum of Discovery for a free viewing of the documentary This Is Not Who We Are.
"This is [Not] Who We Are" is a documentary film exploring the gap between Boulder, Colorado’s progressive self-image and the lived experiences of its small but resilient Black community. Its throughline is the story of Zayd Atkinson, a university student who was performing his work study job cleaning up the grounds of his dorm when he was threatened by a police officer and, soon, by eight officers with guns drawn. He lived to tell the story many Black men don't survive to tell.

Boulder is emblematic of liberal, white, university-based communities that profess an inclusive ethic but live a segregated reality. The film explores the interconnected issues of land use, affordability, racial and class-based segregation, educational equity, and policing. "This is [Not] Who We Are" shares the voices of Boulder's Black community and shows how deeply the roots of institutional racism are embedded. It also explores the ways in which we have the power to change.

A free art workshop hosted by artist and rapper, Anthony Gipson on January 14-15 in Fort Collins.

In this two-day workshop, participants will explore their feelings about freedom, equality, and social justice in connection with Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

Using paint, canvas and various art materials, participants will create a mosaic to express a collective message of unity.

Each individual will have the freedom to express themselves on their own piece of canvas that will then be joined with others to create a mosaic that represents King’s dream of togetherness and community.

Anti-White Supremacy Workshops: Liberation Through Our Relationships -by Dr. Cori Wong Beginning June 22, 5:30-7:00
To create a world where everyone is free, we have to dismantle and replace white supremacy with more liberated ways of being. By first recognizing how white supremacy exists within, among, and between us, we can transform larger cultural and political structures of white supremacy. Anti-white supremacy work in our relationships broadens our capacity to care, connect, and see ourselves and each other more clearly so we can move together, in solidarity, through practices for liberation.
