The vision of the LGBTQIA+ initiative at the JCC mirrors the mission of the JCC Denver to welcome everyone into our community. Through this initiative, the JCC will create and provide year-round programming to engage this integral segment of our community. Through this programming, we aim to engage different types of people (ex: couples with children, single people, couples without children) that identify with the LGBTQBIA+ community, as well as Allies.
