Education is crucial to the success of children and young adults.

Transportation Funding Is In a Hole

Colorado’s transportation has become a significant problem across the state. Excessive traffic, outdated roads and bridges, and lack of mass transit options all weigh heavily on Coloradans. But without putting dedicated funding towards transportation, the problems will only worsen:

It’s just as important for working parents, but many families cannot afford the ever-growing cost of child care. This is made worse by the fact that many states, including Colorado, have not prioritized affordable child care:
