Proposition EE, which would help curb the youth vaping epidemic and expand access to preschool, continues to garner broad, bipartisan support. With more than 120 organizations now endorsing the measure, the coalition includes health, early childhood, education, non-profit, and community-based organizations all committed to child and family well-being. The endorsements, however, have come in not just from committed organizations and elected officials, but from independent editorial boards from around the state. Newspapers ranging from the Aurora Sentinel, the Colorado Springs Gazette, the Colorado Springs Independent, the Durango Herald, and the Denver Gazette have all endorsed the measure, pointing to the positive impacts on child well-being from the early through adolescent years as important reasons to support Proposition EE. As ballots get mailed to voters across the state this week, now is the time to voice your support. Colorado’s ballot is going to be long and complicated. Here are three ways you can speak up in support of EE this week: 

  • Engage with Prop EE on social media – You can visit the Yes on EE campaign’s Facebook and Twitter platforms and share with your friends and colleagues. 
  • Submit a Letter to the Editor – Local publications are eager for local voices. Feel free to contact Bill Jaeger at bill@coloradokids.org if you’re interested in submitting a letter to a local paper!
