Screen Shot 2013-08-29 at 3.24.22 PMIn March 2013, the Colorado General Assembly passed SB-11 — the Colorado Civil Union Act — which provided thousands of committed couples with critical legal protections and responsibilities. The bill went into effect on May 1, 2013.

Rights and protections covered by civil unions include abilities such as taking leave to care for a partner, making medical and end-of-life decisions for a partner, and adopting children together.
