Mission Based Advocacy

Colorado Center for Aging’s advocacy approach is rooted in our four decades of experience as Colorado Senior Lobby where we focused on helping our members and the community at large learn, engage, and make an impact on public policy and resource allocation on behalf of older Coloradans.

Your involvement is a critical piece of our democratic process. We bring together all ages of Colorado citizens. We help create and promote public policy that benefits older Coloradans. Clearly, yesterday’s solutions will not fix tomorrow’s problems – and that includes public policy – we believe that together we can strive to make a difference.

Colorado Center for Aging monitors a large number of Legislative Bills related to aging and to Older Coloradans in general. Our activity intensifies during the General Assembly’s annual January-May session but does not stop when it’s over. The “off season” is a time of plowing the ground, sowing the seeds for the next session. You may review information about active, in-session, legislation that we are closely watching and acting upon by clicking the link below.

This information is discussed during our CCA Advocacy Committee, held virtually on Mondays from 9:30AM to 11:30AM from early in January until the Legislative Session closes in May. Anyone with a strong interest in invited to attend. These meetings continue on a less frequent schedule throughout the rest of the year, with a focus on creating ideas and working with legislators and affinity groups to shape potential advocacy efforts for the following year’s session.

Again, our work never really ends, it just changes shape with the calendar and the scheduling of our educational events.
