Betty Aragon-Mitotes has lived in a historically Hispanic neighborhood of Ft. Collins known as Tres Colonias since 1962. The original residents of Tres Colonias were Mexican immigrants who came to work in Ft. Collins’ sugar beet fields. Betty described herself as being shy for most of her life, but she told us that conditions reached such a point in her community that she felt she had no other choice but to confront her fear and find the strength to fight back. She testifies regularly and vocally in city council meetings. She produced a documentary film about racism in Ft. Collins, and she is one of the co-founders and curators of the Tres Coloinas Museo which preserves the rich history of her neighborhood and currently faces increasing threats of gentrification.
Often called the voice of the Hispanic community, Betty writes opinion pieces & articles in the Coloradoan, using her voice as a platform for others. 



Join COWOI at Ptarmigan Country Club for a high energy networking breakfast! We feature a delicious meal, exceptional speakers, quality display tables and of course GR8 networking!
Our speaker will be Betty Aragon-Mitotes, 2011 Woman of Vision Honoree and recipient of our Woman of Inspiration Award.
Betty will talk about how as women, our work is never done – on many different levels! She’ll talk about her evolution from a quiet woman, focused on her family, to becoming “the voice of the Hispanic community” and finding the courage to speak up at city council meetings, take on drug dealers, and rebuff hate mongers. She will also share the fallout from her acts of courage.
