Re-watch our 2021 Fall Forum!

“Preserving Democracy: A Focus on Voter Rights”

Our annual Fall Forum took place on Monday, October 11, 2021. We heard special remarks from former Colorado Secretary of State Donetta Davidson as well as a representative of the current Secretary, Jena Griswold, looking at how far Colorado has come in the past 50 years.
Former board member Bill Hanna shared remarks about the founding and history of the Colorado Social Legislation Committee, from 1971 to today.
Finally, our great co-sponsors, the League of Women Voters of Colorado, shared their voter guide to ballot issues on the measures facing Colorado and Denver voters.

Established in 1971, the Colorado Social Legislation Committee (CSLC) is a coalition of persons and organizations interested in legislation related to human needs and services, especially at the state level. CSLC is a nonpartisan and all-volunteer organization that works to create a better future for Colorado.

CSLC meets every Monday at noon while the legislature is in session and periodically in the fall when the legislature is not in session.

Meetings include legislative briefings and programs in which legislators and community professionals present information about current problems and proposed legislation. Regular meetings are free and open to everyone.
