Advancing Women Candidates
We Win Colorado champions progressive women candidates in Colorado. Women are powerful leaders who can bring different players to the table to solve important policy problems, from the need for economic development to a lack of affordable health care. Yet women are sorely lacking in Colorado’s top political positions.
Forty-two percent of Colorado State Senators and Representatives are women, making Colorado the number one state for women legislators. Promising, right? But a woman has never served as Governor, U.S. Senator or Mayor of Denver.
We Win Colorado is committed to change that by building the bench of women elected officials. So we support candidates running their first campaign or for a race that will put them on the path to break Colorado’s elected glass ceiling.
