The agency of Human Rights & Community Partnerships is the umbrella agency for eight distinct offices that envision a unified city where capacities and partnerships have been built and leaders from city governments and all corners of our community are empowered and supported. This agency creates opportunities for innovation to take root in local government and throughout the community to impact local challenges. HRCP is the model of inclusiveness, recognizing that diverse perspectives, skills and resources strengthen the foundation for lasting solutions.
Our mission is to proactively protect human rights, build capacities, and strengthen connections that result in stronger relationships in the community through collaboration, communication and advocacy. We address issues concerning older adults, racial, ethnic and religious minorities, women and families, people with disabilities, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals, immigrants and refugees, neighborhood partnerships, and non-profit partnerships.
The recent Trump Administration Executive Orders regarding immigration, deportation and travel have caused sincere confusion and concern in our communities. In the coming days and weeks, the Hancock Administration will be gearing up legal protections and supportive services and working with other providers to ensure immigrant and refugee communities have the resources they need and know what their rights are. That starts with empowering people with information and resources.
Denver has a history of welcoming immigrants and refugees and will continue to act as a welcoming city and an ally for all new arrivals.
Over the next six weeks, DENVER TALKS will distribute more than 1,200 free copies of Citizen: An American Lyric to metro-area residents as well as host a number of book discussions, arts events, guest talks and more. The effort will culminate in a visit from the author, who will join the Mayor in two free community conversations:
Both events are free, but registration is required for the Nov. 15 event at Boettcher Concert Hall.
