Letter from our President
This month, CHUN welcomes our new Executive Director, Brittni Joy West-Ware. As a Denver native, Brittni Joy brings deep experience in working with non-profits like CHUN. But more importantly, she has boundless enthusiasm for advancing CHUN's mission of serving the residents of Denver. I and the CHUN Board of Directors are excited about what the future brings for CHUN, now that we have someone with Brittni Joy's background on board as Executive Director.
Last weekend, I joined our CHUN Treasurer, Richard Wilson, at the CHUN table at the Colfax Block Party hosted by Carla Madison Recreation Center on Saturday August 5th. Richard and I talked with Denver residents about what CHUN is and what CHUN has and can do to improve our Denver neighborhoods. What came through very clearly in our conversations with residents is that many people are hungry for opportunities to engage with their fellow Denverites on so many levels and venues. People want to know how they can have an impact on issues like development in and around their neighborhoods, and how they can help preserve our historic and unique architecture that makes Denver so special. Residents want to get involved in efforts to help beautify their neighborhood streets and parks. Moreover, in a post-pandemic Denver, people are searching for opportunities to reconnect with their neighbors in volunteer activities to help those among us who are less fortunate.
So join your neighbors as members of CHUN and get involved in make our city a better place in which to live and work!! Click her to join.
