Join us from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 21, 2023, at the Buell Public Media Center (2101 Arapahoe) for a festive reception, where COLab will unveil Amplify Colorado – a publicly accessible directory of members of communities of color with expertise and experience in subjects journalists typically cover, as well as reporter and editor contact information to allow members of communities of color and marginalized groups to better connect with their local newsrooms.
This event brings together Voices Initiative participants, Colorado journalists, and community members who have lent their names to Amplify Colorado to celebrate the progress that has been made since the first recommendations were published in 2021.We look forward to hearing your feedback and continued suggestions for the directory.
