Life & Community

Benu Amun-Ra is the daughter of a Black Vietnam veteran and a South Korean immigrant with familial history embedded in the trauma of slavery. We have been an advocate for BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and people living with disabilities since 2015. Benu is also a generational farmer and seed keeper. We have worked with organizations that center on food access and mental health resources as these have been the two most dire issues and primary challenges for marginalized communities. We have worked in advocacy with organizations like Hunger Free Colorado, Colorado Department of Human Services, Colorado Health Foundation, National Young Farmers Coalition and Association of Black Psychologists.
