Thank you to the students and teachers of the Western Slope for an incredible day!

We were so grateful to be joined by over 260 students and supportive adults from 28 schools and youth organizations across Western Colorado on Saturday, October 27, 2018 for the second annual Mountain West Diversity Conference!  See a list of schools and youth organizations that participated here.
