African-American Commission

The Denver African-American Commission is charged with advising the Mayor on issues and concerns that impact or are of importance to the African American community. We serve as a bridge between the African American community and policy-makers and engage in responsible activism for the community:

  • Convener: Forums, communities, community groups, panels, focus groups, inbound information
  • Communicator: Via website, directory, flyers, urban spectrum, other city offices, indirect communication, outbound information
  • Advocate: Talk to policy makers
  • Resource: For mayor and city council

 

We are proud of Denver, its diversity and its commitment to providing the best atmosphere for all its citizens.
