Transforming Safety, A Story of Collective Impact in SE Colorado Springs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join key leaders in Southeast Colorado Springs as they share the innovation and local, collective impact of Transforming Safety, a Colorado bill that was passed by state legislators in 2017. Transforming Safety creates a new safety framework for communities to prevent crime by funding economic and community development programs that support individuals and families impacted by crime and justice system involvement. In a “progressive story” model, you’ll hear from key Colorado state legislators involved with the bill, community members from the local planning team who helped set goals for Transforming Safety in Southeast Colorado Springs, organizations receiving funding for their work through the bill, and entrepreneurs directly benefitting from these programs.  

Free food will be provided by one of the Southeast entrepreneurs benefitting from Transforming Safety.
