Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

2023 Legislative Priorities

The Women's Foundation has been working behind the scenes with Frontline Public Affairs for several months in preparation for the 2023 legislative session. Our levels of support for bills, which range from monitoring to lobbying, are determined by availability of resources, the need for our support, and alignment with our policy priorities, listed below:

  1. Address root causes of poverty and provide holistic and flexible resources to women and their families
  2. Reform Colorado’s tax and budget policies to promote equity and allow for sufficient resources to be dedicated to WFCO priorities
  3. Promote issues and protect rights that promote gender, racial, and economic equity

We will add bills as they are introduced.
