Legislation & Advocacy
The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado advances state and local legislation that protects freedom of belief and practice while ensuring equal treatment under the law for all Coloradans. Through various methods, we leverage our unique, faith-based perspective and expertise to advance a policy agenda rooted in commonly shared commitments to justice, liberty, and religious expression.
There are several ways we work to achieve our main goal of promoting an equitable, just Colorado for all communities, including our most marginalized neighbors. Our key issue areas create for us a number of concrete policy objectives. We secure these objectives through a range of strategies and tactics.
–Policy and Research – We inform the policy dialogue by understanding Coloradan’s challenges and identifying solutions
-Legislative Advocacy We build support for policies that make a difference for Colorado families with low incomes
–Coalition Building We nourish and cultivate strong and effective partnerships throughout Colorado
–Public Education We educate the public on how systems of oppression are intertwined and to create stronger more effective advocates
–Building Relationships We place relationships at the center of our work to ensure that the most marginalized voices are heard
