#BlackLivesMatter Resources

VMG wants to remain a safe space for all. In order to do so, we’ve provided our community and ourselves with a list of resources. This list is evolving, and features but is not limited to, suggested reading, e-learning websites, suggested places of donations, and staff picked Denver Black-owned businesses. We encourage you to look over this list and share it with others.

Think we should add something? Send us an email!

Stay safe and stay woke!
