("My favorite translation of 'blessed' is 'lucky'." Eugene Peterson, author of The Message.} If you are grateful to be one of the lucky ones, we invite you to greet newcomers and to facilitate hyper-local self-directed learning groups that focus on how to be both a Good Neighbor and a good citizen in 2018 and 2020. We hope to cooperate with local chambers, service clubs, churches, synagogues, temples, and community newspapers. Willing to help? Have questions? Call John Wren (303)861-1447
Both of our Let Colorado Vote initiatives have officially qualified for the ballot. This is an important milestone in our work to strengthen our democracy. Reinstating a presidential primary and opening up primaries to Colorado's 1.3 million unaffiliated voters will make our elections more open and more fair for all Coloradans.
We can’t let our focus slip, though, because qualifying for the ballot was just a first step. Now the real work begins: getting these propositions passed. That means building a dedicated on-the-ground team that will connect with voters to make sure they know what a “yes” vote will mean – especially unaffiliated Coloradans, who make up more than one-third of the electorate.
With Election Day coming up fast, we don’t have time to make up for a missed fundraising goal. Can we count on you for a donation to restore fairness and increase participation in our elections?
