  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

Fifth Annual Latino Advocacy Day

February 27th and 28th marks the dates of the Fifth Annual Latino@ Advocacy Day (LAD)!

LAD was created to provide advocacy and lobby training and briefings on current policy issues such as civil rights/economic justice, the environment, education, immigration and healthcare by and for Latinas and Latinos in Colorado. By the end of the event, participants learn about policy issues important to them, meet with their legislators and take a direct role in the policy making process.

Over 200 Latinas/os from throughout Colorado have participated each year since 2007.
The prime focus this year will be on the state budget crisis’ impact on the Latino community.
