Connect the Vote


While American political systems crack at the seams and aisles are staunchly divided, there remains a generation of refugees who are not as disillusioned as the rest of us. New Americans are getting their right to vote for the first time. This generation fled war and endured famine, they know violence and have survived persecution, and still they chose to come here - to a country that always has, and hopefully always will, represent peace, liberty, and justice for all.

 

JOIN US AS WE CONNECT COLORADANS TO HELP NEW AMERICANS SHARE THEIR VOICES, ONE VOTE AT A TIME.

INVEST in the Next Generation of Hopeful Americans

It's time to forget about politics and talk about values. Real honest to goodness American values. 

Work ethic. Integrity. Liberty and justice for all.

 

There is a generation of immigrants and refugees who have risked their lives in pursuit of those values.  People who left persecution, oppression, and injustice to build a new life, a better life, in America. People for whom it remains a great privilege to place their first vote for our future. That’s right. There is a generation of new American citizens who are more excited than ever about the promise of democracy.
