Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights Action Fund (COLOR AF) works to address the imbalance of Latinx representation in the state legislature by creating the infrastructure to identify and support community leaders, increase Latinx representation in elected office, build political influence, and to reframe the narrative around our issues.


DENVER, CO - Last night, Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman was put on notice. Despite the loss of Juan Marcano’s monumental race to be the first Latino Mayor of Aurora, incumbent Mayor Mike Coffman will again be joined at the city by a progressive and reproductive justice champion in City Councilor Allison Coombs.



This is the first municipal election in Aurora where COLOR AF endorsed candidates and engaged our community to turn out to vote. Our digital program reached 67,195 voters in the 29 percent Latino city of Aurora, and we look forward to building more power together in 2024 with Councilwoman Coombs to make positive change for our communities.



To every reproductive justice candidate who ran for office — win or lose — we thank you. Democracy requires the participation of everyone who is able to vote to elect leaders that share our values, and COLOR AF is committed to working towards a more reflective representation of our communities from the local to the federal level.
