Colorado Children's Campaign

5/24/16



The Colorado Children’s Campaign is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization committed since 1985 to realizing every chance for every child in Colorado.

About Us
We advocate for the development and implementation of data-driven public policies that improve child well-being in health, education and early childhood. We do this by providing Coloradans with trusted data and research on child well-being and organizing an extensive state-wide network of dedicated child advocates.
Issue Areas

Every day, we work to:

  • Eliminate gaps in student achievement and health outcomes between low-income children and children of color and their peers.
  • Provide all of Colorado’s young children with high quality early learning and development experiences so they are ready for school and on track for success in life.
  • Secure quality, affordable health care and healthy communities for all Colorado children.
  • Ensure all students in Colorado have access to the quality K-12 education they need to graduate from high school prepared for college, careers and life.

As the leading voice for Colorado’s children at the State Capitol and in communities across the state, the Children’s Campaign has been at the forefront of hundreds of policy wins for kids. Among the numerous laws and programs we’ve helped establish are the Colorado Preschool Program, Child Health Plan Plus and the Great Teachers and Leaders Law.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion and Equity
The Colorado Children’s Campaign is a research, policy, and advocacy organization focused on ensuring every child in Colorado has the opportunity to succeed. We understand that every child has assets and needs specific to his or her circumstances, inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, geography and religion, as well as immigration, economic, and family status.

To effectively fight for what is right for every child—especially the most vulnerable—we recognize that our work must be guided by values of diversity, inclusion and equity. We know adopting these values is not enough; we are committed to integrating them into our daily work with intention, action and humility. Improving in these areas begins with defining the “who, what and how” at the center of this work. We acknowledge the importance of all types of diversity, but are beginning with a focus on race, ethnicity and socio-economic status because research shows these factors are some of the strongest determinants of child outcomes.

Diversity = WHO
We are committed to building racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity among our staff, board, partners and networks of advocates and ambassadors.

Inclusion = HOW
We are committed to an inclusive organizational culture in which people from different backgrounds are able to speak authentically, affect decisions and make meaningful contributions to the work of the organization. Additionally, we ask that our staff expand their understanding of issues and relationships by seeking out and valuing the voices and perspectives of diverse groups and by meeting these individuals where they are—physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Equity = WHAT
In our work on behalf of kids across the state, we are committed to helping create a Colorado in which a child’s advantages or disadvantages can no longer be predicted by race, ethnicity or socio-economic status. As part of this effort, we are striving for racial and economic equity within our own organization, networks and partnerships. We will know that we are successful when being a full and contributing member of the Colorado Children’s Campaign staff and volunteer network is not correlated with race, ethnicity or socio-economic status. Engaging in this work will help ensure that we pursue effective and equitable policies to better achieve every chance for every child in Colorado.

A few examples of how we’re approaching this work include: working to increase the racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of our networks, staff and board; exploring equity issues as a staff and board, including a standing staff Equity Team; reaching out to diverse communities to better understand their hopes and goals; committing our financial resources to these efforts and seeking long-term support for them; and forging or improving networks, coalitions and relationships with individuals and organizations representing diverse racial, ethnic, and socio-economic populations.

Nancy Brinker established Susan G. Komen® in memory of her sister who died of breast cancer. Today, Komen is the global leader of the breast cancer movement investing hundreds of millions of dollars each year for research, education, screening and treatment and encouraging governments everywhere to make cancer a top priority.

In 2014, the Denver Affiliate merged with the Aspen Affiliate to form Susan G. Komen Colorado to carry out Komen’s mission – to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Komen Colorado serves 73% of Colorado’s population in a 22-county service area.

Seventy-five percent of the Affiliate’s net proceeds stay in Colorado for breast cancer screening, diagnostics, treatment and education. Komen Colorado has invested more than $41 million in local nonprofits that provide breast health and breast cancer services to the medically underserved since 1992. The remaining 25% supports the national Komen Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world. Since the Affiliate’s inception, almost $14.7 million has been raised for breast cancer research.

Thanks to the thousands of dedicated corporate partners, generous donors, and people who participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, Ride for the Cure®, Pink Tie Affair, Ski for the Cure and other Affiliate events each year. Komen Colorado is playing a vital role in fighting breast cancer and is able to support the growing need in our community.
