One Colorado PAC Endorses 47 Pro-Equality State House and Senate Candidates for the 2014 General Election

LGBT Coloradans know how important elections are — and we’ve seen firsthand the difference a pro-equality majority can make. In 2012, we watched our state legislature shut down over civil unions, simply because opponents of equality wanted to use our families as a political football.

But after that painful defeat two years ago, we stepped up. With your support, One Colorado talked to tens of thousands of voters on the phone and at their doors — and together, we elected a fair-minded majority. Since then, we’ve made significant progress. We passed civil unions and stronger workplace protections for our families, repealed Colorado’s own version of the anti-immigrant “show me your papers” law, and expanded access to health care for LGBT Coloradans.

Now, as we head into the 2014 election, we know our work isn’t done. Our goal is full equality for all Coloradans. That’s why the One Colorado PAC is proud to endorse 47 state House and Senate candidates from all four corners of the state — both Democrats and Republicans — who have vowed to stand up for our families at the Capitol if elected in November:
