  • January 15, 2019

The Anti-Defamation League Mountain States Region hosted a preview of the 2019 Colorado legislative session on Dec. 17. Participants learned about the legislative priorities of the Colorado General Assembly, heard in-depth analysis about an upcoming bill that will protect and enhance women’s reproductive rights, and received tips on how to be effective citizen advocates.

Guest speakers at the preview session included Colorado Senate Majority Leader Steve Fenberg and Senate Minority Leader Chris Holbert. Both lawmakers discussed the importance of citizen involvement in the lawmaking process and discussed some of the opportunities and challenges facing the Colorado General Assembly this session.

Additional presenters included Dusti Gurule, Executive Director of the Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights and Gena Ozols, Political Director for NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado. Gurule and Ozols provided a detailed look at the proposed Colorado CARE (Colorado Access to Reproductive Health Equity) Act. The bill would expand and protect reproductive health care access and coverage in Colorado. The ADL Mountain States Region is part of a coalition that supports the bill.
