Children’s Issues

The Colorado Children’s Campaign works to improve child well-being through a comprehensive, “whole child” approach, meaning we work across multiple issue areas in order to address a wide range of their most critical needs. We pursue change in these areas through solid data and research, and with guidance from our strategic plan and commitment to values of equity, diversity and inclusion. Our three primary policy areas of focus include:

Child Health

  • Expanding Health Care Coverage
  • Ending Childhood Hunger & Obesity
  • Integrating Health in Places Children Live, Study and Play

Early Childhood Development and Learning

  • Ensuring Access to High-Quality Child Care
  • Ensuring School Readiness with High-Quality Preschool and Full-Day Kindergarten
  • Building a Strong Early Childhood System in Colorado

K-12 Education

  • Protecting and supporting the implementation of school improvement legislation, in the areas of:
    • High-performing Schools and Students
    • Educator Effectiveness
    • Early Literacy
    • School Finance
