Our programs are rooted in the belief that those impacted by the issues lead the best community nonprofit work. The best programs and policies are developed with community members at the table and meaningfully engaged.

2023 Lena Archuleta Community Service Award: Olga Gonzalez

Each year, Denver Public Library celebrates the contributions of Latinos with the Latino Community Service Awards. Awards are given to individuals who have made contributions to our community and are celebrated during a public ceremony during Hispanic Heritage Month. The celebration is a lively event with entertainment and a community reception.

“Time is not a privilege that we have in this community,” Gonzalez says. “There is always a sense of urgency among marginalized people, among disproportionately impacted people, to make change happen."

TED Talk - Olga González - How nonprofits fail communities of color – and what to do instead

Olga González believes nonprofits often underestimate the communities they serve. They swoop in, she says, with outside resources and money but ignore the assets these communities already possess. That's why she endorses the promotora model, where a nonprofit trains people from the community they serve to provide outreach, advocacy, and services. Here, González shares several success stories of promotoras in action – from distributing masks & vaccines to farmworkers during the COVID-19 pandemic to monitoring air pollution near a local oil refinery.



If you are a resident of Commerce City, Globeville, or Elyria-Swansea, you are eligible to have an air monitor at your home. If you decide to have an air monitor, you will be compensated. You will also learn about the monitors, how they work, and how to maintain them!
