After our successful contributions to defeating ballot initiative 115 in the 2020 elections, the Board of Directors of CORCRC voted to close the organization in Colorado. This was two years in the making; much discussion and contemplation was undertaken to come to this final decision.
The efforts to protect women and women’s healthcare will continue through the other incredible organizations in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. CORCRC has carved relationships with these organizations and individual board members and volunteers plan to testify at the State Capitol as in previous years.
We have full faith that the citizens of Colorado will continue to put women first in supporting or defeating legislation that pertains to women’s needs. And, we will, as individuals, continue to work toward that end.
For volunteer opportunities within the women’s rights/healthcare space, please reach out to RCRC (national organization), Cobalt (cobaltadvocates.org), Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, ACLU of Colorado, ProgressNow, and Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR)
The remaining funds of CORCRC were donated to the Cobalt Abortion Fund, which is the next generation of the original UU-sponsored Freedom Fund. This fund was established specifically to assist those needing financial support to afford abortion and follow-up medical procedures. We encourage you to donate regularly and often to assist in these efforts.
Thank you for your support. May you be blessed in your work.
