Your power is in your story. Systems change hinges on our ability to articulate our stories. These are the messages of grassroots organizing.
We provide well-informed data and perspectives on Colorado’s health care system.
As thought leaders working in communities and at the Capitol, we share information about what’s working in our health system and what’s not. As we lead the public dialogue, we hope to offer a big-picture view of the health care system and to help Colorado find common ground.

I cannot vote, so I posted on my social media accounts, “Please be my voice in this election, ask me how your vote affects my life!”
When we lead from a position of community power, we’re much more likely to be successful, without having to compromise our people or values.
