Mission and Organization
Colorado Progressive Coalition is a statewide, member-driven organization that engages communities to advance economic and social justice since 1996. CPC is organized around five campaign areas including racial justice and civil rights; health care; economic justice; statewide base building; and civic engagement. CPC advocates at the local, state and national levels on issues that affect people of color; low-income neighborhoods; immigrants; the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community; and young people.
The Colorado Progressive Coalition fights, builds and wins progressive changes benefiting Colorado voices that refuse to be marginalized. A state-based, member-driven group since 1996, we are one of Colorado's most successful non-profit advocacy organizations, credited with major victories in our focused campaign areas of civil, social, racial, health and economic justice.
Organizing for low-income, minority, immigrant, LGBT and youth oriented communities, CPC battles corporate and moneyed interests that are actively working to maintain or increase systems of oppression affecting our members and their communities. In addition, CPC works to fight and shatter laws and perspectives that reflect racist, classist, homophobic, xenophobic, or sexist ideals that have been written into our society through years of systemic cultural inequity.
CPC works at the intersection of issues, rolling out victories through an integrated campaign structure that includes Health Justice, statewide organizing, Civil Rights and Racial Justice, and Economic Justice. Directed through membership concerns, our campaign harnesses the strength of our 32,000 CPC membership base.
Whether CPC is closing Wall Street bank's doors and curtailing payday lenders profiteering, pushing through anti-discrimination laws, or seeing a minimum wage increase brought to the voters, it is only through our members that we have the power to fight, build and win for our communities, Colorado and beyond.
