The bills we championed and supported in our key focus areas during the 2023 legislative session place our foot firmly on the path toward realizing every chance for every child as we look, for the first time in the 2020s, toward a decade outside of a global public health emergency.View Legislative Agenda
Each year while the Colorado General Assembly is in session, we track legislation relating to children and advocate for bills and policies that we believe will have the greatest impact on child well-being in Colorado. In order to give shape to our legislative agenda, we also compile an annual list of legislative priorities and track whether we’re able to make an impact in these areas. It is our hope that concerned Coloradans will use this information to contact elected officials and ask them for their positions on these important issues.

However, legislators returned to the Capitol to make incredibly difficult decisions to help families respond to, and recover from, the pandemic. Here are the results that we championed and supported.View Legislative Agenda
