Colorado Gives Day starts in

Defy Colorado Humanity For All

Defy Ventures Colorado

We exist for redemption. We exist for transformation. We exist for advocacy. We exist because we know that each and every one of us, is worthy of love. We believe in the hard work of hope and humanity for all.

2.2 million people are in prisons across the United States. At Defy Colorado we work hard every day to solve the host of issues present in our Colorado criminal justice system and we need your help to go even further.

We need to raise $50,000 through this online campaign to continue to create a lifeline to deliver our services during a global pandemic. Together, we can deliver education, valuable resources, and connections to people with criminal histories. Together, we can give them the tools to pull themselves out of a cycle of incarceration to reach for their highest potential and obtain economic freedom. Together, we can advocate for criminal justice reform to address the systemic issues perpetuating mass incarceration.
That's why we are asking for your support through our Colorado Gives Humanity for All campaign.

You can make a difference by scheduling your donation now.

Everyone deserves hope.
Everyone deserves people who believe in them.
We thank you for being those people now more than ever this holiday season.
