This year, we’ll be exploring the theme, Our Space, Our Place: Everyday Activism in Our Communities. Our keynote and breakout sessions will engage self-awareness, social systems, personal skills and collaborative action through this lens.
CO-LEADS was established in 2009 by a group of individuals on the Auraria and DU campuses as a way to build intercampus connections and to bridge discussions of leadership and social justice in a meaningful way. The 2013 Summit is co-sponsored by Colorado Mesa University, the Community College of Denver, the Iliff School of Theology, Metropolitan State University of Denver, the University of Colorado Denver, and the University of Denver.
