Every year for the past 38 years, Colorado Senior Lobby - an all-volunteer organization - has represented the interests of Colorado seniors at our Legislature. How do we do that?
First is the monitoring of the over 600 bills introduced by the legislators each year; culling out those that might impact seniors. Then, to dive deeply into those particular bills, which may number as many as 100, to understand what is trying to be accomplished with each bill, to discuss in an open session how those bills will positively or negatively impact our rapidly growing senior population, and then to actually lobby and testify for or against those bills. Again, all with volunteers.
Second is by raising awareness in the legislature of CSL and its role in representing Colorado issues impacting seniors. This happens through lobbying, and through the annual Senior Day at the Capitol.
Finally, CSL volunteers work throughout the year to identify and push forward on key issues of interest to Colorado seniors - primarily revolving around Quality of Life. This may include Financial and Physical Protections for Seniors, Affordable Housing for Seniors, Seniors in the Workplace, to give three examples.
We need you to join us as a member. This helps in many ways, but the two most important are in increasing our clout at the legislature and in having your annual dues to help defray the costs of operating the organization.
No organization can exist without financial support, no matter how frugal the operation.
