Building a brighter future for LGBTQ+ Coloradans and their families
One Colorado is advancing equity and freedom for our LGBTQ+ community through state policy, advocacy, health care, and education.
We progress the lived and legal equality for LGBTQ+ Coloradans to ensure our community's voices are heard and represented within halls of power—so that every Coloradan has the opportunity to thrive.
Codified 18 pieces of pro-equality legislation into Colorado law protecting LGBTQ+ Coloradans
For over 12 years, One Colorado has effectively advocated for LGBTQ+ Coloradans and their families by lobbying the General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments on issues like safe schools, transgender equality, relationship recognition, and LGBTQ+ health and human services.
Protected and expanded trans healthcare in Colorado
In 2023, we partnered with state leaders to incorporate gender-affirming care into both the Colorado Insurance Benchmark Plan and the Colorado Medicaid policy. Additionally, we partnered with the Safe Access to Health Care Coalition to enact SB23-188, a law ensuring protection for all involved in gender-affirming care in Colorado.
In 2022, One Colorado Action Fund endorsed 52 pro-equality candidates
The OneCO PAC endorsed 52 State Legislative candidates in 2022, including 8 LGBTQ+ candidates. Additionally, we endorsed 8 candidates in statewide races, a first for One Colorado.
