At the Capitol

Gov. Hickenlooper signs HB-1069, surrounded by children and advocates.
On April 20, 2011, Gov. Hickenlooper signed House Bill 1069 into law, requiring all public elementary schools to provide students with 30 minutes of physical activity per day.

The Colorado Children’s Campaign advocates for children in a number of ways, but one of the most important ways is by tracking and supporting important legislation and policy at the state capitol. Each legislative session, we play an active role in ensuring that children are made a priority by providing information to policymakers and state leaders, organizing grassroots advocacy efforts across the state, and working closely with other like-minded advocacy groups.

As an organization with more than three decades of experience advocating for children at the capitol, we realize the importance of communication and staying informed. In order to give child advocates the most up-to-date information regarding advocacy activity at the capitol, we compile an overview of our advocacy agenda for each legislative session, as well as information on upcoming and current legislation and ballot measures.
