If you’ve been to our website lately you may have noticed it has that new-website smell. Did you know it also has a new engine? Behind the scenes we have a new way for you to track legislation impacting Colorado kids.

Our Capitol Updates section includes our analysis of proposed legislation, scheduled hearing dates, our position, and more.

While you are there, check out our other new features to ensure our website is as accessible as possible. It’s mobile- and tablet-friendly so you can easily find information on the go. Many of our pages can be translated into Spanish, and the entire website can be altered to have bigger text sizes, high contrast colors and photo labels for visitors with vision impairments. The site can also be navigated using tabs for those with limited physical ability.

And as always, we are your one-stop shop for data and research on child well-being. Now it’s just easier to access. In our publications section you can filter publications by issue area (health, K-12, early childhood, and more), as well as type of publication (fact sheets, blog posts, infographics, reports, testimony, and more). You can also download all our documents from the same, and we’ve added a feature to view PDFs within your browser for our KIDS COUNT in Colorado! reports.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the new website. Send comments and suggestions to Beza Taddess at beza@coloradokids.org.
