Building on our Expanding the Table for Justice listening tour, we are diligently working to build connections with and increase our presence in Durango and La Plata County. Through our PEAK (Public Education, Activism, and Know your rights) training program, we are increasing opportunities for Fort Lewis College students in Durango to influence our state legislature and take local action on housing issues in the 2024 legislative session. In October, we met with student leaders and elected officials as well as community members, local business owners and ACLU of Colorado members living in Durango to ensure a community-informed perspective on our expanding work to increase access to affordable housing.
