Commitment to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion

We believe...

Cultural heritage resources should be reflective of all communities involved.


Acknowledging the past in an open and holistic manner can build a foundation
for an inclusive future.


Justice and equity can be advanced through documentation, interpretation, and
preservation of cultural heritage.

We commit to...

Investing in respectfully collecting, preserving, sharing, and supporting history and historic contributions of people who have suffered discrimination and injustice.


Being active listeners and collaborators with individuals and organizations closest
to the histories of those who have suffered discrimination and injustice to amplify their voices.


Becoming inclusive in our board composition to welcome the multiple perspectives
of Colorado history.
