The driving force behind our transformational organizing model is supporting and centering leadership of people most impacted by racist health inequities. Our core leaders get deep investments in their leadership and support for their involvement in our work, including through a formal leadership program. They set our campaign strategy, lead local organizing teams, take action regularly, and develop into campaign and organizational leaders that vote on our policy and organizational priorities.
Our core leaders in Fort Morgan and Pueblo hold monthly organizing team meetings, campaign events, and one-on-one meetings with residents and partners in the county to identify priority issues, and build momentum for our longer-term work in these communities. We’ve built a base with health care workers across Colorado who do not hold positional power within their workplaces and who have a personal stake in our policy priorities.
