More information on the Color Colorado Conference:

Last February, Progressive Majority hosted the 1st Annual Color Colorado Conference to discuss innovative and creative ways to make the Colorado political process more inclusive and diverse. This groundbreaking conference was a huge success, in large part because of people like you. Last year's highlights included:

a.. 216 conference attendees;
b.. 26 panelists with diverse expertise from the professions of law, politics, ministry, media, art, and government spoke, twenty-three of whom were from communities of color;
c.. 28 organizations displayed a table at the conference; and
d.. Two television, four radio stations, and over a dozen newspapers covered the conference
