RMPBS and KUVO present Hispanic Community Voices: The Impact of Covid-19, sponsored by AARP Colorado


Alianza NORCO:  Alianza’s mission is to strengthen and empower our immigrant community and their families through key services, civic education, leadership development and community organization.

The BIPOC Alliance: Collectively, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color of Larimer County are taking action to decolonize systems and institutions, redefine our relationship to social movements across the board, and liberate ourselves and our people. We are dedicated to building trusting relationships and a mutual support network between BIPOC led groups and organizations with aligned values.

Brothers Redevelopment, Inc: In partnership with the State of Colorado and several communities across the state, Brother redevelopment administers rental assistance to households who have been economically impacted by COVID-19.

Chicana/o and Latinx Studies Fund at The University of Northern Colorado: The Chicana/o and Latinx Studies program is dedicated to providing a culturally-based education for current and future CLAS students to thrive in. Through community engagement and small class sizes guided by experienced faculty, we are dedicated to supporting the success of students as they go on to become leaders in their respective career paths.

Over the past four years, our program has seen a 500% growth rate of students majoring in Chicana/o and Latinx Studies. The cost of higher education continues to increase and the need for scholarship support is at an all-time high. To support the success of our students and to provide critical financial support to students majoring in CLAS, we are creating the Somos MAS (Motivating Academic Success) scholarship.

Support the success of CLAS students by making a gift to the Somos MAS scholarship. Any gift makes a big difference in the lives of our students.

Clinica Tepeyac/Tepeyac Community Health: We envision a healthy community with access to regular and ongoing health care.
