A Message from CLS
"We are outraged at the number of Black Americans who have lost their lives to police brutality. CLS is an agency that seeks justice and strives to ensure the safety, economic stability, and health of low-income and vulnerable Coloradans, many of whom are people of color. We stand now and always with those who peacefully protest systemic racism, all forms of violence, and racial, social, and economic oppression. Black Lives Matter."
