The Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center is a left-leaning advocacy organization focused particularly on non-violent social change. [1] It has provided fiscal sponsorship services to numerous other organizations, including a Denver-based Black Lives Matter organization. [2] The Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center describes itself as “radically progressive” and works on issues including opposing pesticides, “social justice,” “global peace,” and “nuclear guardianship.” [3]

Background

Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center was founded in 1983 by people who had been involved in demonstrating against the Rocky Flats Plant nuclear weapons facility. [4] The organization focuses on several issues for involving various left-progressive “justice” causes,[5] hosting regular collective meetings, including “Social Justice,” “Media Literacy,” “Economic Justice,” “Global Peace,” and “Nuclear Guardianship.” [6]

The group advocates “radically progressive” personal and social change. [7] The organization also opposes using pesticides in Boulder County, Colorado, believing them dangerous to community health. [8] The organization views social justice as requiring a change in the distribution of wealth and it believes the climate change contributes to this inequality. [9]

Black Lives Matter

The Denver-based Black Lives Matter 5280 is sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center. [10]  On its website, Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center features its sponsorship of Black Lives Matter 5280 and its movement is “aligned in Black love, power, and liberation” in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, in order to embody the declaration that Black Lives Matter “regardless of gender identity, gender expression, sexual identity, immigration location or status, gang affiliation, profession, ability, economic status, and religious beliefs or disbeliefs.” [11]
