Building a Better Statewide Online Conversation!
It’s time to start a REAL online dialogue about how to improve state policies and build a BETTER Colorado.
We’ve created this online conversation to host constructive dialogue among Coloradans about how we can build a better Colorado. This online conversation supplements similar in-person conversations which we’ve hosted with 1800 community leaders in 37 communities across our state and dozens of other engagements with audiences from various Colorado organizations.

We're talking about how to improve STATE policies here, NOT federal or local policies.
When Coloradans are engaged in respectful conversation, looking at issues through the shared lens of the state that we all love, we have unending faith in their ability to work together to find the right solutions for our state.
Building a Better Colorado is non-partisan, and so is this online dialogue.
As with our in-person discussions, Building a Better Colorado takes NO POSITION on the issues which we tee-up for conversation. Our only goal is to host an honest and respectful conversation among Coloradans who share a love for our state and want to leave it better than we found it.
We want YOU to participate in this conversation, and we want you to participate constructively. This isn't a public "bathroom wall" where you can vent your frustrations anonymously. Accountability is essential to every honest conversation and we require that you register in order to participate and own your comments. If you aren't comfortable putting your name on what you want to say, then you probably shouldn't say it.
