Centering the Voices of Families and Communities for Better Policy in Colorado

The Raise Colorado Coalition formed in 2018 with support from the ZERO TO THREE Think Babies Campaign. It is convened by the Colorado Children’s Campaign, Clayton Early Learning, and a diverse Steering Committee that work together with coalition members to advance equitable policies that will help expecting families, pregnant people, infants, and toddlers in Colorado thrive.

Operationalizing this commitment has been an ongoing process which has evolved over time and continues to evolve as approaches to engagement are refined and informed by those with lived experience. This brief focuses on the experiences, lessons learned, and results of the coalition’s efforts to center the perspectives of those most impacted in policy advocacy.
