Just like you, we’re doing our best to stay productive during this difficult period, and making sure that when the stay-at-home order is lifted we’re healthy and ready to get back to full steam. I’m incredibly proud of my co-workers, my neighbors, our public safety officials, and most [1] of our elected officials like Gov. Jared Polis for everything they’re doing to get us through this. And I’m not alone: new polling today shows 75% of Coloradans approve of Gov. Polis’ management of the COVID-19 emergency. [2]

When Washington lets us down, Coloradans step up.

While we all do our part to get Colorado through this by staying at home and wearing a non-medical mask when we have to go out, here are a few ways you can virtually make a difference for the week of April 13:

Keep Abortion Providers Safe: Face Mask Donation Pledge

Virtual Town Hall with AG Phil Weiser

Abortion is an essential medical procedure, and remains accessible in Colorado even as states across the country attempt to use the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to block abortion and further restrict reproductive rights. We are thrilled to have Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser joining us for a virtual townhall about abortion access and how his office is working hard to make sure this Constitutional right remains protected.

What the LGBTQ Health? Closing the Gap Virtual Tour

In our effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, One Colorado has postponed all ‘What the LGBTQ Health?’ tour stops—but just because we are practicing social distancing doesn’t mean that we can’t continue to build community. We still plan to visit communities across the state once it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will be offering three statewide virtual options to learn, discuss, and create community!
