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.

Leader Annmarie Jensen discusses the need for affordable housing
A home is a place where everyone should feel safe, where our worries don’t follow us, and where our families can live comfortability. However, while rent prices climb, the idea of an affordable home becomes unsure and unsettling for many. …
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.
