Every Coloradan deserves to feel safe in their community, but like the rest of the country, crime has been on the rise here in Colorado. It’s on us to ensure every family has a safe place to live, work and raise a family – and to do that we need to make smart public safety investments to address the root causes of crime so we can build safer communities across the board.
Our economy has been working against low- and middle- income families for far too long, and the pandemic has only made matters worse. For decades, working families’ incomes have been at a standstill while the cost of basic needs like housing, education and childcare has skyrocketed.

Rents are out of control, mortgage rates and property taxes are unpredictable, and many of our neighbors have been forced out of their homes due to the economic consequences of COVID-19.
