Public Policy Voice/Witness

Together the member denominations of the Colorado Council of Churches can be a clearer voice and stronger witness for justice for all of God’s children than any one denomination can be by itself. To make a witness on any issue, the Council must have a Public Policy Statement on that issue. Public policy statements are voted upon by each denomination (the denominational executive casts the vote. To be approved, no denomination can cast a dissenting vote. You can view each of our Public Policy Statements listed under the Publications tab above or click here.

Voices for Justice is a dedicated group of volunteers who are tracking legislation concerning social justice issues at the Colorado General Assembly. Learn more here.

In its second year, “Faithful Thursdays” is a diverse coalition of leaders, organizations and community members who are committed to adding a deeper, moral dimension to the public policy-making process in Colorado.

Our focus is to advance a faith narrative and collaborative process that supports a just economy, promotes equity, and eradicates racism in Colorado. 

We will hold multi-faith events, every other Thursday, at the Colorado State Capitol throughout the 2020 legislative session of the Colorado General Assembly. Some of these events may feature specific legislation, while other events may focus on forwarding a shared narrative of justice, love, healing, reconciliation, and care for the other. Find out more here.

Join us at our kick-off event on Tuesday, Jan. 7th, noon at the South Foyer of the Colorado State Capitol, 200 E. Colfax, Denver, CO.
