Rooted in our sacred traditions, we work together to move from fear to liberation, from violence to life, from isolation to beloved community, so that our thoughts, words and actions place human dignity and care for creation at the center of public life.
One person, one act at a time, linked together, creating the world that we know is possible.
Since 1978, Together Colorado (formerly Metro Organizations for People) has organized alongside volunteer community leaders to build and solidify lasting power in the state of Colorado. Collectively, our leaders, member institutions, and staff developed this organization, which now spans 220 congregations and faith leaders across the state. We are a member of the national network, Faith in Action.
We are people of various faith traditions organizing to create a better world for our children and our children’s children; one that values, uplifts and protects the humanity and human dignity of every person.
BY WHICH WE NAVIGATE TO GOD’S COMMONWEALTH
Our vision of God’s Commonwealth is a sacred community where we share a commitment to sustaining the earth and all its inhabitants, so that everyone has the opportunity to thrive, without exception.
TO REACH GOD’S COMMONWEALTH
On our path to God’s Commonwealth we will pursue campaigns that:
Transform our public institutions so that they constantly prioritize the voice, participation, governance by, and needs of all God’s people and of God’s creation;
Transform our economic systems to serve the needs and rights of the people and land of Colorado; and
Establish equity for all Coloradans, particularly those marginalized by race, class, gender, immigration status, religion or other forms of oppression.
In such a time as this, we must think about how we support one another to organize around the changes we want to see in creating quality schools, a moral economy, accountability and voice in local and national policies, equal access to affordable health care and dismantling systems of racism and white supremacy. Please take a look at our work to become familiar with what we do.
The earth is sacred. We must live in balance with all of creation, using only what we need, and recognizing that there is enough for all.
We desire a moral and communal economy based on the infinite value of human beings, not material objects.
We have a moral obligation to provide equal access to affordable health care for all people.
We reject isolation, violence, and fear. We choose community, life, and liberation.
Will we continue to exclude and harm people who do not fit our ideal of what an American should be, or will we create a community where we respect the dignity of all people?
Will we continue to sacrifice what the community needs in order to protect the rights of the individual, or will we build the beloved community?
Will we let money decide whether families can thrive, or will we guarantee that all people have what they need to live a dignified life?
Will we continue to value some people more than others, or will we treat all people as children of God?
