MESA Events

Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA) is a program of Mental Health Partners, a non-profit organization located in Boulder, Colorado. The MESA team relies on support from grants and donations from the community to serve as the only rape-crisis center in Boulder and Broomfield counties. Since 1972, MESA has helped thousands of survivors of sexual assault, their friends and families.


MESA hosts fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds and community awareness.
