We make opportunity happen by leading the debate on family economic security and driving public policy solutions that help Coloradans get ahead and stay ahead. We envision a Colorado that is a state of opportunity for all.
HOW WE LEAD
- Identify: Uncover and research systematic barriers to opportunity in Colorado.
- Engage: Build coalitions, drive discourse, and increase understanding of those barriers and how to address them.
- Advocate: Formulate, propose and promote public policy solutions that lower those barriers.
-Promote family economic security by developing a secure option for workers to save for retirement, protecting borrowers from predatory lending, increasing the minimum wage and developing two-generation strategies that tie education and training opportunities for parents with early childhood education opportunities for their children.
-Transform post-secondary education and training so that all students have the opportunity for academic and workforce success, regardless of background, age or preparation.
-Ensure Colorado has a long-term strategy on aging to improve quality of life, protect family integrity and financial security, and reduce costs to the public and private sectors.
-Through constitutional reform and tax modernization, increase financial support for and effectiveness of public services that assist families working to get ahead and stay ahead.
