ACLU of Colorado is launching a statewide initiative on Tuesday, June 29. Expanding the Table for Justice (ETFJ) is a 60-day listening tour to connect with Colorado advocacy groups, anointed and appointed leaders, and everyday individuals to learn about their community work, how they view the work of the ACLU, and how the ACLU of Colorado may support and engage in the civil liberties and civil rights issues that are important to them.
The goal of Expanding the Table for Justice is to take necessary steps to engage as trusted partners and collaborative allies with all communities whose rights are at stake under systemic oppression.
Individuals, community leaders, justice organizations, policymakers, and advocates from across the state are invited to engage with us in a series of interactive, thought-provoking conversations and listening sessions. ETFJ team members and project stakeholders will discuss issues including criminal legal reform, disability rights, homelessness, immigrants’ rights, Indigenous justice, LGBTQ+ rights, multifaith issues, racial justice, reproductive rights, voting rights, and more. Expanding the Table for Justice is led by ACLU of Colorado’s new Executive Director, Deborah Richardson, and ACLU of Colorado staff Nicole Loy and Julian Camera as project coordinators.
