    Position: Storyteller
    Grad Year:
     2023
    Hometown:  Littleton, CO
    Major: Undecided

    Hello everyone, I'm a freshman and amateur photographer from Littleton, Colorado. My favorite thing to do is read, so if you don't see me in the CCE office there's a good chance that I'm in the library. I hope to pursue an English major in the future and get some sort of job that lets me read as much as I can. I think my greatest skill is being able to take action shots of people working on bettering their community, which means that I might have found my perfect job as the Storyteller. Don't be afraid to drop by, say hello and let me interview you!

    The Colorado Springs community means a lot to me, and I’m really excited to help bring it and CC together! As a Storyteller, I help share all the cool ways that happens on the CCE Blog. Outside of the CCE, I’m a filmmaker, a runner, and a CC Freshman. I love telling stories in interesting ways, and I hope to major in Film to keep finding new ways to do that. If you’ve got an intriguing story you want told, let me know!

My dream is to one day combine my passion for health care, molecular biology, and community outreach into a career. When I’m not in the CCE office or studying in Olin, I am playing cello in Packard, serving meals with the Marian House soup kitchen, or exploring the Springs’ coolest trails with RMFI!

    Hey there! My name is Angelica Wang and I'm excited to be the CCE Student Staff Coordinator this year.

    Madie Alexander

    Grad Year:
     2020
    Hometown: Telluride, CO
    Major: Molecular Biology
    Minor: Biochemistry
    Coalition: Sustainable Community Development

    With an interest in medicine as a career, I have long been invested in pursuing community organizing and engagement with the goal of bettering health equity on local, national, and international scales. As such, much of my work in high school and currently is focused on pursuing health equity, and as an avenue of that food security. At CC I have cultivated this passion by involving myself with GlobeMed, CCEMS, and CEL on campus, as well as SET Clinic and Memorial Hospital in the larger community. I look forward to working on how sustainable community development can improve community health and collective health equity this coming year. In my spare time I love getting into the mountains, cooking, reading, and watching Netflix at the gym.

    Claire Altieri

    Grad Year:
     2020
    Hometown: Oakland, CA
    Major: Mathematical Economics
    Minor: Global Health
    Coalition: Education

    My name is Claire Altieri (she/her/hers), and I am a fourth year at CC from Oakland, California. My introduction to community organizing stemmed from my love of photography when I began a project in which I held one-on-one sessions with members of my community to allow them space to share their history, vision, and hopes for our community. My passion for direct service began with a local project and has carried through my time at CC through involvement with Roots: A Colorado Springs Homeless Collective, Colorado College Learning Initiative in the Mountains, as a part of the Community Engaged Scholars program through the CCE, and the CCE Co-Op. Through my past work and my current position with the CCE, I hope to cultivate a shared sense of responsibility for addressing collective problems and realizing collective visions. Many CC students do not consider themselves to be citizens of Colorado Springs, and I hope to foster this sense of citizenship through the work of the CCE Co-op.

    Grad Year:
     2022
    Hometown: Denver, CO
    Coalition: Education

    I am a second-year student from Denver, Colorado. In addition to being a Co-Op Organizer for the Education Coalition, I am the 2022 Class Representative for the Colorado College Student Government Association, a coach in the Public Achievement Program, and a First-Year Experience Mentor. My principal interests are political thought and community organizing, and my passion for education stems from my struggles with dyslexia. I got my start in community organizing in Denver Public Schools, where I organized student actions for Black Lives Matter and March For Our Lives. I also organized student voter registration efforts and managed a grassroots school board campaign. I believe that through education, cooperation, and direct action the Education Coalition can provide for the educational needs of our broader Colorado Springs community. It is my hope that The Co-Op can instill students and community members with a passion for nonviolent organizing and provide them with the tools they need to organize and act.

    Margot Flynn

    Graduation Year: 2020
    Hometown: Portland, Oregon
    Major: Environmental Science
    Minor: History
    Coalition: Sustainable Community Development

    My love for the environment has snow-balled into a passion for sustainability and sustainable food systems. The time I have spent in class learning about the multitude of systems at play around us, my work for Colorado Springs Food Rescue and the Colorado Springs Pro-Housing Partnership, and the semester I spent abroad in Cambodia have all shown me that there are many pieces that make up a stable, sustainable, and supportive community. Food systems and affordable/attainable housing are two salient pieces of this puzzle that I find myself most interested and involved in. I hope to bring conversations about these topics as well as others to the Sustainable Community Development Coalition and discuss the the obvious and not-so-obvious intersections at work in our community.

    Coalition: Political Advocacy

    My name is Kadin. I grew up in Denver and am involved in the co-op because I care about helping CC students become involved in politics. I get involved in the CCE through my work with the CC Democrats. I have been involved with many political campaigns around Colorado Springs and have worked to help Get Out the Vote on campus.

    Graduation Year: 2020
    Hometown: Highland Park, IL
    Major: Molecular Biology
    Minor: Religion
    Coalition: Political Advocacy

    I am so excited for the work the CO-OP is going to do this year.  After spending three years in the Colorado College community I look forward to helping bridge the gap between our campus life and the greater Colorado Springs community on a political level.   I've spent the past three years organizing for J Street U on the campus, regional and national level and my role in the organization has taught me invaluable lessons on how to build strong community across political differences to achieve social and political change.  On campus, I work as an Admission Fellow, tutor and mentor D11 students, organize for J Street U nationally and co-chair CC's chapter.  In my free time I love to cook, go on walks and go to yoga classes.
