Prof. Flores was honored as the Alumna recipient of the Building Bridges Circle of Change Award on Friday, April 17 at the Seawell Grand Ballroom of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Upon acceptance of the honor, she gave a talk entitled, “Mindfulness and Voice,” in which she celebrated the Building Bridges tradition of silent retreat as a practice in support of social change. Fellow honorees included social justice advocate Harold Fields and performing arts organization Magic Moments.

The annual Circles of Change event honors individuals who make a positive difference in the world. The accomplishments of these individuals aim to inspire transformation of hate, discrimination, and violent conflict. Building Bridges hopes to motivate community members through demonstrating that positive change is possible, that the courageous acts of one expand into circles of change.
