As you explore this site consider supporting this very important effort.  Founded in 2010 by a small but determined group in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives has been steadily building bridges between two distant communities – ethnic-minorities & political conservatives.  Rather talk about the need for changes as so many have perfected, we’re doing something about it. We locate and hire quality interns, thus beginning the process of removing animosity and growing mutual-respect. And we pay for everything.

This program is a necessary step to be sure, but it is also expensive.  If you would like to sponsor all or a portion of a student’s life-changing experience CLICK HERE.
