What We Do
We make sure everyone is included in the local political process through civic engagement efforts including our voter guides, election forums, and voter registration efforts.
We work tirelessly to monitor our local and state government to ensure they uphold our values of equity, diversity, and separation of church and state. We keep community members in the Pikes Peak Region informed about what happens in their government through calls to action, our annual Legislator Report Card, our podcast series Civic Circle, and community educational meetings. We work in coalition with other community partners to ensure transparency and accountability in our public institutions, most recently inlaw enforcement.
We are your local resource if an incident regarding discrimination or separation of church and state issues arise. Contact us if you would like advice or want us to intervene.
We work for and are made of the community. From our Creating Community Breakfast to the Undoing Racism workshop, our work is also about building relationships with diverse partners so we can work towards the common goal of making our community a place that serves everyone.
Our work is powered by YOU. We are powered by every dollar donated, every hour volunteered, and every voice used to speak up for equity. To stay informed of our current campaigns and work, sign up for our newsletter:
Get ready for the 2020 Census!
The Census is our one chance every ten years to make sure we have an accurate count that determines our funding and representation by the Federal government. When you fill out your form, you bring in on average $2,300 per year to Colorado for programs that help YOUR community. An under-count means a direct loss of funding for all of us. We need your help to encourage our community members to take the census and let them know that it is safe and secure. We have several phone-banking events coming up, which you can find on our events page!
