Minimum Wage – COPA led a huge victory last November winning Amendment 70 to increase the minimum wage to $12 by 2020! But we know our work is far from over and that even $12 is not enough for Coloradoans still struggling to make ends meet. We are continuing our work in collaboration with labor, faith and community groups to push local legislation that will continue to push for higher wages.
Public Transportation – The fight for transit justice continues as we engage and organize communities that are directly affect to hold Regional Transportation District (RTD) accountable to making transit accessible to all– with a specific focus on areas that consist of low-income communities and communities of color. We will continue to engage and educate the public around issues of inequity within our existing transit system and push to ensure RTD meets the needs of all community members who rely on public transportation for their daily lives.
