The Chinook Center is building a progressive, mission driven coworking and community space that aims to empower and connect grassroots social, economic and environmental justice organizations in the Pikes Peak region. Based in a model of mutual aid, the center will provide affordable working and event space for organizations by pooling resources. In addition, the space aims to bridge the distance between local activist organizations and scholarship through research, workshops, and internships.

The Chinook Center will serve as a hub of a diverse array of grassroots organizations that can flourish in a community of support and solidarity.
