Colorado Children’s Campaign: Every Chance for Every Child

The Colorado Children’s Campaign is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization committed since 1985 to realizing every chance for every child in Colorado. We advocate for the development and implementation of data-driven public policies that improve child well-being in child and family health, youth success, early childhood, and family economic prosperity.

By providing Coloradans with trusted data and research, and organizing an extensive state-wide network of dedicated child advocates, we work to achieve the following: 

  • Eliminate gaps in student achievement and health outcomes between children of color and children in low-income households and their peers. 
  • Provide all of Colorado’s young children with high quality early learning and development experiences so they are ready for school and on track for success in life. 
  • Secure quality, affordable health care and create healthy communities for all Colorado children. 
  • Ensure all students in Colorado have access to the quality K-12 education they need to graduate from high school prepared for college, careers, and life. 

As the leading voice for Colorado’s children at the state Capitol and in communities across the state, the Children’s Campaign has been at the forefront of hundreds of policy wins for kids. Among the numerous laws and programs we’ve helped establish are the Colorado Preschool Program, Child Health Plan Plus, the Great Teachers and Leaders Law, and the creation of the new state Department of Early Childhood.
