CCDC invites you to attend and support our 2018 ADA Access Awards Luncheon, to be held on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. (doors open at 11:30 a.m.) at Mile High Station. At this event, we will recognize and honor community organizations and individuals who go above and beyond in their advocacy efforts for the disability community and who have done this work with equity in mind. All proceeds from this event benefit the programs of CCDC all year-round.
Lisa has worked for over 30 years in the nonprofit sector and grassroots social justice work. Before becoming a consultant to nonprofits, she served as Executive Director of Grassroots Grantmakers, a national membership organization of foundations and other funders working to lift up grassroots voices and leadership in philanthropy. Until 2014, she worked with Rights for All People, Colorado’s first immigrant-led immigrant rights organization based in Aurora, Colorado. After eight years as a volunteer, Lisa became its first executive director for 11 years. In 2015, RAP merged with the Colorado Progressive Coalition and became Colorado People’s Alliance, continuing the legacy of progressive change established by both organizations. While at RAP, Lisa also led the establishment of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition and the Aurora Human Rights Center, an immigrant and refugee integration project in Colorado’s most diverse city. We are so appreciative of Lisa’s time and acceptance of our invitation to be our keynote speaker in 2018.
Along with the keynote address, CCDC will honor four Coloradans who have made major contributions to advancing social justice for people with all types of disabilities.
