Kudos We Think Are Worth Re-sharing

March 9, 2018

In recognition of International Women’s Day yesterday, we gave shout-outs to SE2 friends who are working to change their communities and our state.
We think it’s worth thanking them again for helping to move the meter on Colorado issues that matter. Kudos to:
Laura Giocomo and Kelly Brough at the Denver Chamber of Commerce for their energetic commitment to advancing Denver’s business community.
Hunger Free Colorado CEO Kathy Underhill for her tireless efforts to reduce hunger and increase access to food stamps in Colorado.
Denver Director of Elections Amber McReynolds for her work to increase access to voting and boost civic participation.
Smart Colorado’s Henny Lasley and Diane Robinson for their tireless advocacy around policies that prevent access to marijuana by youth.
Blood Systems’ Julie Scott for working to increase blood donation and drive participation among a new generation of blood donors.
Local public health practitioners around the state for working to reduce tobacco use – the leading cause of preventable death, disease and health inequity in Colorado.
Laurie Harvey who retires this month after more than three decades of leading the Center for Work, Education and Employment in efforts to help low-income Coloradans – predominantly single mothers – train for and launch careers so they can support their families.
Lisa Jansen Thompson of the Early Childhood Partnership of Adams County for helping families support young children’s learning and healthy development.
Jordana Ash, Ann Bruce and Lindsey Dorneman from the Colorado Department of Human Services’ Office of Early Childhood, who work hard every day to strengthen the systems that support children and families across Colorado.
Thanks for all you do to make our state great!
