Legislative Session 2023 recently ended. Together Colorado leaders worked tirelessly this session to pass transformative legislation to build trust in our criminal justice system, keep families together, protect our shared earth, and keep Coloradans in their homes and communities, regardless of zip code, immigration status, or color.
During the 2022 Legislative Session, Together Colorado, along with our partners, lobbied our legislature for a just and equitable Colorado, where everyone can thrive, no exceptions.
Durante la Sesión Legislativa de 2022, Juntos Colorado, con nuestros socios, presionaron a nuestra legislatura por un Colorado justo y equitativo, donde todos puedan prosperar, sin excepciones.
During the 2021 Colorado Legislative Session, Together Colorado encouraged our state elected officials to advance our human dignity legislative agenda. As a member-led organization, we identified three pieces of legislation to prioritize: SB21-173 to strengthen renters' rights, HB21-1117 to expand affordable housing, and HB21-1142 to reform the discriminatory police practice known as a showup. Together Colorado Federated Committees supported additional legislation that will keep families together regardless of immigration status, improve conditions for agricultural workers, clean up our air and water, and make sure every child in Colorado has the resources they need to thrive. This session, Together Colorado Leaders and Faith Leaders demonstrated tremendous grassroots organizing power to stand with all our neighbors, no matter what we look like or where we come from.
In this year's legislative summary, we highlight Together Colorado's legislative priorities and the organizing done by Together Colorado Leaders to make Colorado a state where all of us - Black, brown, white, long-time resident or newcomer - can thrive.
To say the 2020 legislative session was unprecedented would be an understatement. As Coloradans, we know what it’s like to make tough choices, especially now. The role of our state government is to make our choices a little easier by making sure families have what they need: a safe and affordable home, the ability to earn a good living, stay healthy, and retire in dignity, the opportunity to provide a bright future for our children, and the chance to move through our communities without fearing for our lives or our loved ones.
We all have a role to play in creating the Colorado we want and we need our state government to step in in a crisis, not step away. That means more than just responding to an emergency; it means investing in us and our collective future. If this pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we all depend on one another. But being in this together and recognizing our dependence on one another also means investing in the people and services that keep our communities safe and functioning during this pandemic and beyond. Now is the time for those we elected to unite across differences and make policy choices that help every-day people in pursuit of a safe and thriving Colorado.
During the 2019 Colorado Legislative Session, we encouraged our state elected officials to promote an agenda of human dignity by supporting legislation that provides affordable health care for all Coloradans, allows cities and counties to raise the minimum wage, promotes and protects affordable housing, supports family values by passing paid family and medical leave, and advances the dignity and safety of immigrant families through expansion of the existing driver’s license program.

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 merciful, rehabilitative justice system that maintains the hope and human dignity of every person.
We desire a moral and communal economy based on the infinite value of human beings, not material objects.
