Fireside Chat: A Safer Place

Join us for our second virtual chat on March 3rd to explore housing and food security in Denver and interconnections for creating a safer community for us all.

On this panel, we will explore:

  • How do homelessness and racism intersect? In what ways does this intersection lead to deeper inequity?
  • Why are housing and food becoming more and more expensive?
  • How can we create systems that support autonomy and sustainable outcomes for those struggling with rent and food security?

The panel will be live-streamed in both English and Spanish on Thursday, March 3rd from 5:00pm - 6:00pm MT. To view the live-stream, please register for the Fireside Chat below. Details in Spanish will be available on the website soon.

Five Takeaways: Migration in the Mile High City

On January 20th, we held our first Fireside Chat of the What Is Community? Series, powered by DU Grand Challenges. This Fireside Chat focused on the immigrant, refugee, and first-generation experience in Denver. From the policies affecting immigration to what it means to truly support the entrepreneurial spirit of refugee communities - our panelists had lived, professional and academic experiences to share with us on the intersectional topic of migration. Our panelists included Rep. Iman Jodeh, Slavica Park, Tracy Harper, Hava Gordon, and Marissa Martinez Suarez. Watch the livestream and explore all takeaways on Fireside at Five's blog!
Educational Videos to Support Independence

By: Whitney Buckendorf, International Studies, Public Policy; Corin Turner, Management; Sam Colvett, Public Policy, International Studies; Peyton Howell, Public Policy, Biology; Charlie Lemke-Bell, International Studies, Public Policy

The goal of this project was to create a set of educational videos for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Denver Office to use over the course of their resettlement programs. The videos themselves contain information on how to obtain a money order, how to navigate the light rail and bus systems in Denver, and how to purchase tickets for both the bus and the light rail. Because the clientele of the IRC ranges widely in country of origin as well as language spoken, the videos contain either no dialogue at all or only the necessary dialogue for the processes at hand.
