One Colorado Endorses Jared Polis for Governor of Colorado

By Daniel Ramos, Executive Director, One Colorado

I am pleased to announce that One Colorado Political Action Committee has endorsed Jared Polis to be the next Governor of Colorado!

Jared Polis has led the charge in the fight for LGBTQ equality in the halls of Capitol Hill. During his first term as a Congressman, Jared led the passage of a ground-breaking LGBTQ-inclusive hate crime law, which closed gaps by making crimes committed based on a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity a hate crime. Throughout his career, he has sponsored bills that would mirror Colorado’s nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ Coloradans, like the Equality Act which would protect Americans from discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, and the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would protect all students, including LGBTQ students, from bullying and harassment in their schools. Jared has represented the Colorado values of freedom and equality for all in Washington, and I know as Governor, Jared will be a pro-equality champion who will work to continue Colorado’s progress towards being a more fair and just state for LGBTQ Coloradans and their families.

That’s why we are excited to invite you to join us and LGBTQ Coloradans to an event honoring Jared Polis as the next Governor of Colorado! Click here to join us!

From his background as a businessman who created good-paying jobs, to his leadership on issues LGBTQ Coloradans care about like health care access and keeping families together, Jared has a proven record of turning bold ideas into action. I know he will make a great Governor, and we will work to elect pro-equality candidates like Jared this November.

Be sure to join us on Wednesday, August 22 at 6:30pm at Exdo Event Center for a celebration with Jared as we gear up to elect pro-equality candidates in November!
