Inclusive women’s group open to women of all colors and backgrounds, including those that identify as women and the feminine identity. Our goal is to empower our individual, spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational needs directly supporting the Colorado indigenous and disproportionately impacted community through transformative art healing.
We provide cultural enrichment in diverse communities including holding safe spaces for cultural traditions of Danza Azteca de ColorAztlan, transformative indigenous education, braves spaces for cultural representation, and campaigns to address awareness and bring enforceable protections with cultural and trauma sensitivity to issues in the indigenous communities such as; Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, domestic violence, drug/homeless/mental health support, support for asylum seekers, and environmental awareness.
Currently working as climate change organizers and cultural educators for disproportionately impacted communities to create protections from cumulative impacts of environmental racism. We have worked on SB 1266 and now, on the first ever in Colorado, Environmental Justice Task Force in current policies to transformatively address climate change with authentic equity.
Worked with CU Environmental Justice Department, March On, Future Coalition, 350.org., International Indigenous Youth Council, Conservation Colorado, and Western Conservation, to bring awareness for Murdered and Missing Indigenous People throughout Colorado and North America.

SUNCOR SUNDOWN

A short film about the impacts of Colorado's only oil refinery on our communities’ public health.

Suncor Energy, a Canadian company, runs an oil refinery north of Denver Colorado.  Suncor is one of Colorado’s largest emitters of  greenhouse gasses, as well as one of the largest emitters of toxic air pollutants, and has been operating without any changes to its operations or pollution controls for years.

In spite of numerous enforcement actions and settlements, Suncor continues to flout air quality laws, putting neighboring communities – who are primarily Latino and low income – at extreme risk.

This is their story.
