ኮሙኒቲያችንን ማጠናከር ማለት !!! አንድነታችንንና ማህበራዊ ሕይወታችንን ማጠናከር ማለት ነው!!! “ድር ቢያብር አንበሳ ያስር” ነውና ማህበራዊ ችግሮቻችንን የምንቋዋቋመው አንድነት ሲኖረን ብቻ ነው!!!

Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa and one of the oldest in the world, where “Lucy” a 3.2 million years old skeleton was found. The traditional Ethiopian flag is Green, Yellow and Red ion trip color wit no emblem in the center.

The CEC, in its office and whenever representing the Ethiopian Community members in Col- orado Shall flew this traditional Ethiopian flag (Green, Yellow and Red ) with no emblem. The Ethiopian Community (CEC) is a non profit, non-racial, non religious and non-political organization of Ethiopians residing in Colorado which is dedicated to respond to the social, cultural and humani- tarian needs of its community members.

The CEC may not take side in hostilities or engage in political, racial and religious controver- sies. However, it raises its voice whenever political, racial and religious injustice are done to Ethiopi- ans back at home/ Ethiopia and in other parts of the world.

Ethiopian Community Association in Colorado was originally established in 1992 as a non- profit, tax-exempt 501(c) (3) organization with a mission to promote cultural, educational and socio- economic services and programs for its community members in the Denver Metro area.

For more than two decades, The Ethiopian Community Association in Colorado has been de- veloping and providing programs and services which have greatly contributed to respond to the basic needs of its community members. However, during this period of time more than one organizations under different names, but with almost the same/ similar mission and purpose have come and gone.

In 2015, there were three Ethiopian Community Associations (Ethiopian Community in Col- orado, Ethiopian Community of Colorado and Yehulachen Ethiopian Community) functioning in the state.

In the attempt to bring these three community associations together and establish one unified and strong community association in Colorado a mediation committee composed of six members was established in July 26, 2015 and a mediation process which took about six months of time was con- ducted.

In January 10, 2016, the three associations unanimously agreed to dissolve the three existing associations and signed a historical document and established “The Colorado Ethiopian Community”.
