About us

The Women’s Lobby of Colorado seeks to provide better opportunities for women in our state since 1993 by ensuring that public policies reflect gender equity and justice. By maintaining a daily lobbying presence at Colorado’s state capitol, our all-volunteer organization has kept the needs of women front and center in our state’s public policy debates for more than a decade.


The Issues

Women in the workplace

From pay equity policies to worker benefits and rights,  workplace policies impact the economic well-being of women and tend to have an outsized impact on women in general. Women's Lobby of Colorado supports policies to ensure Colorado's workplaces are spaces where women are treated with equity and respect.

Protections from sexual and domestic violence

Women face sexual, domestic, and intimate partner violence at much higher rates than men. LGBTQ communities face similar problems. Women's Lobby of Colorado supports policies to protect people from sexual violence and support survivors as they cope and move forward.

Support for aging Coloradans and retirement security

Women face inequities throughout their lives that result in financial inequities as they get older. Women's Lobby of Colorado supports policies that support Coloradans' rights and opportunities as they age, safety-net programs that provider older Coloradans assistance when they need it, and policies that support every Coloradan's ability to save for retirement.

Reproductive health and rights

Women's Lobby of Colorado supports all Coloradans' access to reproductive health care and education and protection for reproductive rights. This includes access to safe and legal abortion.

Support for working families across Colorado

As the costs of living in Colorado continues to rise, the Women's Lobby of Colorado supports policies to ensure that all families can thrive. This includes support for public transportation and tax policies that reflect the needs of all Coloradans.

Health care

The Women's Lobby of Colorado supports policies to ensure every Coloradan has access to affordable, quality, and accessible health care. This includes support for public health care programs that provide coverage to all Colorado communities.

Intersectionality

Women's Lobby of Colorado supports all women in Colorado, including women from our many diverse communities. We support policies to protect the rights and lives of women of color, immigrants, refugees, and the LGBTQ community.
