Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR) works to ensure Latinas and their families in Colorado lead successful, self-determined lives. As a reproductive justice organization, COLOR develops Latina leaders on a youth-to-elder continuum and educates and mobilizes Latinas in Colorado for positive policy change at the state and federal levels.
We break down the culture of shame and stigma surrounding abortion, contraception, comprehensive sexuality education and young parenting, because real-life stories help influence dominant narratives and public policy.
