VOTE NO ON INITIATIVE 121 (Results: Initiative 121 passed)
It is with heavy hearts we share that Initiative 121, a statewide income tax cut, has passed. This is a major loss for our state’s ability to fund our resources like schools, roads, housing, and hospitals. We remain committed to organizing together to ensure ALL Colorado communities have the funding they need to prosper – regardless of race, income, or zip code.
VOTE YES ON PROPOSITION GG (Results: Prop GG Passed)
We are excited to share that Prop GG passed! Our communities came together to vote for more transparency on our ballots so we can make informed decisions about future tax changes & hold the wealthy accountable for paying what they owe. Thanks everyone who worked on this measure!
In 2022, we worked together across the state to get out the vote, protect funding for our communities, increase ballot transparency, and hold the wealthiest few accountable for paying what they owe in taxes. We supported Proposition GG for ballot transparency and fought against Initative 121, a tax cut that removed $600 million from our state budget.

In 2021, we fought for our right to share housing costs with roommates and to support residential facilities for the elderly, unhoused, and returning citizens in Denver. We also organized for transparency and accountability in law enforcement by making the Office of the Independent Monitor autonomous of the agencies it oversees.
We are thrilled that, together, we defeated Ballot Measure 2F, which would have made it illegal to live with more than one unrelated roommate, and passed Measure 2G, which will strengthen the Office of the Independent Monitor. Learn more in our full summary below!
Whether we are Black or white, native or newcomer, Latino or Asian, we know that, for democracy to work for all of us, it must include us all. During the 2020 Civic Engagement season, we organized with our leaders and faith leaders for fair taxes, paid family and medical leave, and to get out the vote in Colorado.
We’re so grateful for our powerful leaders, faith leaders and partner organizations. Our sustained collective efforts place us further on the path for human dignity for all Coloradans – Black, brown, white, native or newcomer – no exceptions.
In such a time as this, we must think about how we support one another to organize around the changes we want to see in creating quality schools, a moral economy, accountability and voice in local and national policies, equal access to affordable health care and dismantling systems of racism and white supremacy. Please take a look at our work to become familiar with what we do.
The earth is sacred. We must live in balance with all of creation, using only what we need, and recognizing that there is enough for all.
We desire a moral and communal economy based on the infinite value of human beings, not material objects.
We have a moral obligation to provide equal access to affordable health care for all people.
