Freedom from Sexual Violence

Committees & Groups

Colorado Advocates for Racial Equity

CARE (formerly Aspiring White Allies Group) is a space where white/white presenting people within the sexual and domestic violence movement engage in work around white privilege and white dominant/supremacy culture. Because we recognize that learning about racism has often fallen on the backs of those who experience it, CARE aspires to hold a space for white people to learn about fighting racism together without the labor of people of color, but with its guidance. We explore how to examine privilege, interrupt racism, create anti-racist cultures and practices, train others, and do better. For more information, contact Jenna Harper, at or 720-728-8381, or Kathy Holland, at or 720-728-8382.
