WELCOME TO DCFR!
The Denver Council on Foreign Relations  is committed to heightening public awareness and building understanding of contemporary and emerging international issues. In doing so, DCFR seeks a better informed Colorado regarding the global issues that impact us all. We do so by hosting a range of events, forums, and discussions, all open to the public and funded by our members designed to help the citizens of  Metro Denver gain access to experts on national and international issues.



​​​​​​​We look forward to seeing you at a DCFR event soon!

Whether it be our speakers series, conferences & programs, or fellowships, we cannot enhance our efforts without community support. You may, of course, specify a particular program (speakers, scholarship, etc.) or leave the allocation to your Board, all of whom serve DCFR pro bono

Thank you in advance for supporting our efforts!

ANDREW ROMANOFF - candidate for the U.S. Senate. As president and CEO of Mental Health Colorado, Andrew led the fight for the prevention and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders. Among the results: pathbreaking programs for children and families and $68 million per year in life-saving services for Coloradans in need.

Andrew won four terms in the Colorado House of Representatives - including two terms as speaker of the House - and led the Democrats to their first majority in 30 years. He earned recognition from more than 50 state and national organizations as one of the most effective legislative leaders in America.

Andrew authored laws to protect the environment, expand the supply of affordable housing, and support the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. He crafted an economic recovery plan to put thousands of Coloradans back to work, built a bipartisan coalition to pass it, and secured the largest investment in school construction in state history.

Andrew began his career at the Southern Poverty Law Center, joining the battle against Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups. His work there fueled a lifelong passion for justice - a cause he later championed at a state civil rights agency.

The same commitment took Andrew to Nicaragua in the wake of a brutal civil war. He taught English in rural high schools and continued teaching here in Colorado.

In 2012, Andrew founded the Posner Center for International Development - the first such initiative in the country. The Posner Center is now home to more than 60 Colorado-based organizations, all advancing sustainable solutions to global poverty.
