We’re Mobilizing Coloradans to Be the Voice for Kids

Coloradans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education. And voters care about child nutrition. Recent polling shows strong support for healthy school meals for all.

In recent years, we’ve worked with early educators, parents, coalition partners and community leaders to help:
• Pass Proposition EE, securing universal, voluntary preschool for every four-year-old in Colorado
• Pass legislation to establish the Department of Early Childhood
• Secure more than $100 million to expand access to high-quality early education and care programs, such as home visiting and family, friend and neighbor child care

Join us to help all children in Colorado succeed in school and life.
