Colorado

Coloradans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education. This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development. We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

That’s why we’re empowering Coloradans to be the voice for kids.

Colorado activists use their voices in a number of ways! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, and meet with elected officials.

There are countless ways you can use your voice to advocate for children. Plus, joining in our work will positively impact your life as well as the lives of children in Colorado and beyond.
