To survive and grow the conservative movement in America MUST become more diverse by reaching a greater number of ethnic-minorities. The Conservatives of All Colors Internship Program represents an important step for the future:
- Placing young black & Hispanic minds into internships allows them to experience for themselves the truths about conservatives & the values we hold.
- Younger generations of minorities do not have the same biases & preconceptions as those who lived the civil rights struggles of the past. They are an open, persuadable book.
- Through this program we may be raising up the Tim Scott’s, Mia Love’s and Allen West’s of tomorrow.
Founded in 2011 by a small but determined group of in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives has been steadily building bridges between two distant communities – ethnic-minorities & political conservatives. Now through our relationships with minority organizations like the NAACP, Urban League, Black Pastor’s Associations and those with conservative organizations and legislators we are uniquely positioned to locate quality interns, place them and grow conservative values in minority millennials.
Our first class of interns will be serving a seven-week session in Washington D.C. from June 3 – July 22, 2017!

This program is a necessary step to be sure, we have GOT TO begin doing a better job of reaching out, communicating with and developing relationships with young people and college campuses. But this necessary effort is also expensive. To make this program a reality we are in need of financial sponsors.
