We are thankful to have connected with many of you in the month of June across several community events. Your smiles and passion for diversity, equity and inclusion keep us going. We are so appreciative for all the support you showed us last month and can't wait to see you all again!
June Celebrations
Heart and Sol partnered with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Loveland Events Committee and with the help of several community members, donors and sponsors we were able to bring Loveland its first Juneteenth Celebration!
It was a huge success with food trucks, performers, speakers, local businesses and resources present. The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment was able to provide vaccinations on-site and overall the community showed an immense amount of support and love that day!
We had such a great time with everyone
and hope it was an educational celebration to remember!
We could not have made this event happen without our donors and sponsors who value and support diversity and inclusion in our community. Please check them out and support them!
If you were able to attend and would like to tell us about YOUR experience or favorite part of Loveland's first Juneteenth event, please send an email to lovelandheartandsol.secretary@gmail.com
and you might see it on our website!

Love was abound in Loveland with two Pride events in June!

First we joined Loveland Pride for the Pride on the Rooftop event. There was food, drag performances, guest speakers, dancing to DJ Brian Howe, raffles and so many smiles! Heart and Sol was honored to have been selected as the non-profit organization to receive proceeds from the event. We humbly thank Loveland Pride and the attending community members who showed support for our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts and our goal to make Loveland a more welcoming place for all.

The following day, we joined Loveland's first Pride March! The community came together after the march where there were speakers who eloquently shared their stories and Mayor Marsh's Pride proclamation from City Council was read aloud for all to hear.

Many thanks to the Loveland Pride group and LGBTQ+ community for making all of it possible! We would also like to thank
Mayor Marsh and County Commissioner Jody Shadduck-McNally
for the city and county Pride Proclamations!
What is up next for Heart & Sol?
We hope to start preparation for a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. If this is something that interests you, please join our next meeting TONIGHT, Thursday 7/15 @6pm, to help us kick off our planning!

Another large community event will take the help of many in order to be successful. We'll need planners, volunteers, sponsors and donors. If you are interested in donating goods/services OR being a sponsor through a monetary donation, please send an email to:

Loveland Museum Classes, Camps & Workshops
The Loveland museum is a great partner and supporter of Heart and Sol. With summer here, we want to make sure everyone knows that they offer a variety of art classes for all ages. These classes allow students the opportunity to explore a variety of mediums with talented instructors. For most classes, no previous art experience is required. Unless specified, all supplies are provided for each class.
We thank you for showing interest in diversity efforts and events in the Northern Colorado area. As Heart and Sol of Loveland our group is made up of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and allies who look to promote ethnic and cultural diversity in the Loveland community, with partnerships throughout Northern Colorado. We look to inspire conversations and influence local change by engaging with individuals, organizations and community resources. Our goal is to support, celebrate, and embrace cultural richness for our community.
