For centuries, US laws and policies have neglected, exploited, and attacked immigrants. Then, the pandemic swept the country, accelerating and magnifying every irreparable harm. To overcome the forces that created this crisis, we must tell, and listen to, stories about the real, human effects of racist and xenophobic laws and policies, as well as stories about the world we want to create. So we decided to make a documentary.
Our annual luncheon provides opportunities to learn about health and health equity, connect with grassroots leaders, advocates, health care professionals, legislators and others, while contributing to the future of Center for Health Progress. This year, we’ve created a platform for immigrants to stand in their own power, own their story, and demand the change they and their communities want and deserve. You’re invited to join us for the virtual premiere of this documentary short film and learn about the pain, injustice, resilience, and resourcefulness of Coloradans ill-served by our laws and policies.
Every year, we recognize champions for health and health equity in Colorado. If you know someone or an organization worthy of recognition, nominate them today!
Sponsors help make this event possible, in addition to supporting our campaigns and advocacy work. This year, sponsors have the unique opportunity to be named in the documentary credits, in addition to many other benefits. Check out our sponsorship options (PDF)!
