---->Art by Natie: I am a mother of three wonderful boys ages 4, 11, and 14 they are my pride, joy and most of all my world. I am a recent graduate from Metropolitan State University of Denver and have received my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice and minor in Human Services. I have been through many hardships through my journey of life and in January of 2017 doctors discovered two Brain Aneurysms, through stents and coiling, I am now doing good. My therapy was through art, family (friends) and God; we each have a battle in life so be courageous and fight with faith and knowledge.
---->Working with residents and organizations in Denver, Black Lives Matter 5280 assists in building more loving and united Black communities while eliminating anti-Black violence and racism. To expose, address and eradicate structures and systems of oppression in Denver, BLM5280 uses a holistic racial justice approach that includes strengthening individual and community health and wellness, relationship-building, educational programming, and direct actions. This chapter is part of a national movement, aligned in Black love, power, and liberation in order to embody the declaration that Black Lives Matter- regardless of gender identity, gender expression, sexual identity, immigration location or status, gang affiliation, profession, ability, economic status, and religious beliefs or disbelief. Also in keeping with the national movement, BLM5280 centers and celebrates the lives and leadership of Black women and girls, aligning all Black people in love, power, and liberation. Our work is to cultivate communities of abundant joy where all Black people are emboldened and empowered to lead, love, heal, and thrive.
