Building Bridges Across Cultures, Difficult Conversations and Transforming Community w/ Chris Martinez
Chris is a lifelong community activist, organizer, and family man. Growing up, Chris navigated multiple identities both within his family and in the community. This helped him develop an extraordinary understanding of how to build bridges between cultures. He is dedicated to his community, Montbello, an ethnically diverse neighborhood on the Northeast side of Denver that has gone through many changes in the last couple of decades. He has traveled the world, worked in education & community development, and is currently helping create a large scale affordable housing & supermarket project. Chris is not afraid of change, discomfort, difficult conversations, and has solutions that I believe can make this world more inclusive, understanding, and connected. His wisdom, mindfulness and experience come through strong in this interview and I believe we all have a lot to learn from listening to him.
