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 Coloradoans will use this information to contact elected officials and ask them for their positions on these important issues.
In 2020, legislators and advocates faced a massive public health crisis and economic freefall in the middle of the regular legislative session. Many important bills that would have advanced the well-being of Colorado children and families were lost. 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
