Community Catalyst

We in Boulder remain in the throes of two pandemics: COVID-19 and our own reckoning with race relations. As we wait for our turn to receive the first shots of the new vaccine, we invite you to participate in a community conversation about the racial divide in our local community.

Boulder County has lost a gentle giant who inspired many as a champion and social innovator for Latino families.

Nino Gallo succumbed to COVID-19 on Dec. 1. 

Nino was involved with many people on a wide variety of projects inside and outside the Boulder County government. His work links to education, economic development, civic participation and a variety of areas of community impact. Nino began working in Boulder County in 1995 and was assigned to support the migrant farming communities at Casa de la Esperanza and Casa Vista.

In 2000, he held a new position in the Department of Community Services to support the Latino community, and for the last several years he created and directed the Personal Investment Companies program in the Division of Community Action Programs. Nino was a pioneer on many fronts in community service programming and won awards over the years for his innovative work. Nino, who never turned down additional duties, stepped in to help this year with the 2020 Census, providing critical outreach support to our county's Latino community.


Please join us for the first in an exciting series of virtual trainings crafted for nonprofit leaders about inclusive leadership. The series will help executive directors, leaders, and trustees gain a deeper understanding of inclusive leadership, learn concrete strategies to implement within their organizations, and network with non-profit leaders across Boulder County.

"Once again, in a moment of crisis, this community rallied. Volunteers and donors leapt into action. Many of you are hosting evacuated friends, sheltering animals, gathering supplies, feeding our firefighters, or donating money – THANK YOU."
