Citizens Project monitors bills each year at the Colorado State Legislature, and we report back to our community about bills we support and oppose, based on their alignment with our values of equity, inclusion, and justice.


Each year we publish a Legislator Report Card at the end of every Legislative Session, outlining how El Paso County Legislators voted on the bills we took positions on.

Below is the One-Page version of the Legislator Report Card.

The full version will be available soon.

Each year at the Creating Community Breakfast, we present the Amy Divine Award


Why: The Divine Award is given annually to someone whose commitment to equity, inclusion, and justice has impacted the community in positive and lasting ways. The award simultaneously recognizes the accomplishments of its recipient. It honors the legacy of Amy Divine, the founder of Citizens Project, who dedicated her energy to championing traditional American values of: 


equal rights • individual freedoms • separation of church and state • inclusion • justice for all • civic engagement • respect for diversity 


What: Citizens Project invites members of the community to submit nominations for the prestigious Divine Award that recognizes a person in the Pikes Peak region who has worked tirelessly to create a vibrant democracy in which equal rights are protected, individual freedoms are secure, differences are respected, and people fully participate in civic life. 


If you know someone deserving of consideration for this award, please use the form below to nominate them by June 21, 2024.
