EPA suggests classifying Denver’s ozone level as ‘severe’

Citing a failure to achieve federal ozone standards, the Environmental Protection Agency has suggested downgrading Colorado's Front Range area status from "serious" to "severe." The area has an ozone measurement of 81 parts per billion, which surpasses the national standard of below 75 parts per billion. The state must submit an implementation plan within 18 months that explains how they will address the reclassification. - 9News

Colorado senate passes universal preschool bill

The “Department Early Childhood And Universal Preschool Program” bill passed with five amendments after it previously gained approval in the House back on March 25. The bill could save Coloradan families an average of $4,300 annually. Colorado already has free full-day kindergarten, which was passed in 2019. The universal preschool bill would make children eligible, starting in the fiscal year 2023-24, for 10 hours of free preschool education a week. - KDVR

Local Organizations

Building Bridges - Building Bridges has been equipping leaders with the skills they need to transform divides for more than 25 years. Based in Denver, Colorado, our work has evolved over time, from our roots in peacemaking abroad to our present focus on racial equity and intersectional liberation here at home.

Compassion & Choices - Compassion & Choices of Washington provides advocacy, counseling, and emotional support to qualified individuals who desire a peaceful, humane death.

Towards Justice - Towards Justice is nonprofit law firm that seeks to advance economic justice through impact litigation, strategic policy advocacy, and capacity building. We were founded in response to the high volume of wage theft complaints that were not being addressed in Colorado, but quickly broadened our scope to take on cases that dismantle the power imbalances that undermine the value of work and diminish worker rights.

Colorado Children's Campaign - We advocate for the development and implementation of data-driven public policies that improve child well-being in health, education and early childhood. We do this by providing Coloradans with trusted data and research on child well-being and organizing an extensive state-wide network of dedicated child advocates.

Women's Foundation of Colorado - Women are the co- or sole-breadwinners in 45 percent of Colorado households. By maximizing opportunities for all women to have access to education, job training, and career placement that is needed to secure livable wages, achieve pay equity, advance in their careers, or even start their own businesses, we strengthen the economic engines of our communities.

The Center on Colfax - The organization aims to engage, empower, enrich, and advance the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer community of Colorado. The Center on Colfax will be a collaborative leader that positively impacts the lived experience of LGBTQ+ people in Denver and Colorado by creating inclusive programs and events, fostering connections, and leveraging the individual and collective strengths of the community.

Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition - Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition is the premier organization in Colorado advocating for disability rights. Our mission is to advocate for social justice for people with all types of disabilities (what we call a cross-disability). Members consist of people with disabilities and our non-disabled allies (coworkers, employers, family members, friends, and neighbors), all working together to support disability rights.

Chinook Fund - Chinook Fund supports grassroots organizations working on issues of social and economic justice; by pooling our collective resources, we seed groups making a positive, systemic impact to improve the quality of life for all Coloradans.

Bicycle Colorado - We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state.

Have you been feeling lethargic and unmotivated although you’re following a “healthy” diet? Are you working out regularly but struggling to see an increase in muscle mass OR loss of weight? Although these are common questions, they can often bring complex answers.

Aging with economic security and dignity is not guaranteed in our society. Ageism can minimize the value and contributions our elders have to offer, creating real social and economic impacts for them and the community at large. Learn how reframing our thoughts about the older generation and addressing important policy issues can change the outcomes for many in their later years.
