2012 Advocacy Guide
You have more power than you probably think you do. Even if you have never set foot inside the Colorado Capitol, even if you have never said what you really think except around the dinner table, you do have a voice in how Colorado’s government works and how it affects your life. The key is to use your voice.
Here’s the one piece of advice that’s more important than anything else you’ll hear or read: The government belongs to you. Speaking your mind and participating in your government is a right guaranteed since the founding of this country. You don’t have to be highly informed. You don’t have to be a great public speaker. You just have to be willing to share your experience. Be willing to teach what you know. Be will-ing to learn something, too. It’s your government, and with your help it can be better.
