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 in the LGBTQI community, as well as Allies.

The committee planning these programs are comprised of JCC staff as well as volunteers that are committed to engaging and welcoming everyone to the J. Similarly, we are welcoming committee members from organizations such as Jewish Colorado, Judaism Your Way, The Center, One Colorado, OutFront Magazine, Transgender Center of the Rockies, and many other local synagogues.
