Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

We, the Board of Directors at DOVIA Colorado, stand with people of color and the Black Lives Matter movement. We believe there is enormous opportunity to dismantle systems of exclusion and oppression, and build stronger, smarter, safer communities for consideration. What are we missing? Please tell us by sending us an email: doviacolorado@gmail.com.
