“I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they’ll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.”
Living in Liberation is a profound journey, one that empowers us to make choices that not only help us evolve into our best selves, both individually and collectively, but also contribute to a tapestry of transformation. This tapestry is intricately woven with the threads of the Four Allys of Living in Liberation, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions. It is upon these pillars that each of our programs are meticulously constructed.
Within the tapestry of existence, Living in Liberation interlaces every strand of freedom sought by the Black/African American Community over the span of three centuries. It offers the power to heal generational traumas, unburdened by the shadows of traditional systems. It is the promise of connecting with those who share our race and ethnicity, fostering an unshakable sense of belonging. It is the comfort of knowing that healthcare professionals, who understand our backgrounds and embrace intersectionality, are there to stand with us in our times of need. It is the liberty to express our beliefs, faith, and spiritual growth in a culturally resonant manner.
Living in Liberation also bestows upon us the space to express our emotions, liberated from the weight of societal stigmas or the specter of silence and neglect. Tragically, for the majority of BIPOC Larimer County residents, the utterance of these liberating sentiments remains an elusive aspiration.
Yet, through the steadfast support of Queen's Legacy Foundation, these aspirations become attainable realities. Living in Liberation assumes paramount significance as it empowers each of us to reclaim the inherent strength we possess. Through this journey, we collectively confront the forces that once subjugated us, unflinchingly meet their gaze, and ultimately reassert our enduring humanity.
