Who We Are

IMPACTING THE COMMUNITY FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS

Citizens Project is a local nonprofit 501(c)3 organization spotlighting issues in the Pikes Peak region and mobilizing people to strengthen our community by promoting equity, inclusive impact, civic engagement, and social justice. We educate the community through our online newsletter and nonpartisan voter guides, we monitor local government and public schools to ensure that rights and freedoms are upheld, and we mobilize residents to make their voices heard.

MISSION

Citizens Project is a fearless, bold advocate and an engaging voice that empowers and challenges our entire community to embrace equity, inclusion, and justice.

VISION

We envision a Pikes Peak community that is a vibrant democracy in which equal rights are protected, individual freedoms are secure, differences are respected, and people fully participate in civic and community life.

Where we Focus our Energy

Equity and Inclusion

Citizens Project works to educate and empower people in the Pikes Peak region to move towards true inclusion. Through our outreach, we seek to promote equity in our public spaces and challenge community members to uphold this value. 

Justice

As bold advocates for justice, Citizens Project will inform, engage and educate our supporters in all areas of justice. We passionately believe in justice for ALL and will stand with the community in advocating for the rights of all of its citizens.

Civic Engagement

A vibrant democracy requires that voters be informed, have access to communicate with elected leaders, and have the opportunity to help shape public policy. Citizens Project ensures the protection of our local democracy through protecting the right to vote, hosting educational forums, publishing voter guides, and working collaboratively with the community to promote equitable public policy.
