COLORADO – Colorado Senior Lobby (CSL) is a place where your voice can be heard without fear of any political backlash or standing. CSL encourages Colorado’s General Assembly, the U.S. Congress and state and federal government administrators to enact responsible legislation and establish effective regulations and administrative guidelines that positively affect the quality of life of all Colorado older citizens
CSL members work to influence change through advocacy and education of public officials on current issues. CSL monitors legislation and administrative rule development to track and inform the public how legislators vote on bills related to senior issues and how legislation, once passed, is implemented. After the legislative session adjourns, the Senior Scorecard, a record of legislator votes on senior issues is distributed to CSL members and all state legislators.
What are the common issues that older adults are concerned about? What we at Colorado Senior Lobby (CSL) hear over and over again are four basic themes: better and more convenient transportation options for access to medical care and everything else, health care costs and availability, housing we can afford and that works for an aging body, and engagement in society.
Colorado Senior Lobby is looking for citizen activists of all ages to support the positions taken by the Senior Lobby. You do not have to be a senior to be an active member of CSL.
This is an opportunity to make your voice heard. The Senior Lobby has a strong presence at the state capitol but each additional person promoting CSL positions enhances our influence. As a volunteer you will find this to be a very rewarding activity and one that will give you direct influence in protecting seniors.
