Statement by NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado on the Need to Protect and Fund the Colorado Civil Rights Division

Denver – NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton today issued the following statement on the need to protect the Colorado Civil Rights Division:

“We fully support the work of the Colorado Civil Rights Division to protect Coloradans against discrimination. Republican efforts to defund it are inexplicable and inexcusable.

The division and its predecessor agency have been a key part of maintaining civil rights in our state since 1951 – and that includes reproductive rights. This is a fundamental belief among Coloradans. Discrimination has no place in our state.

We stand in solidarity with communities of color, with LGBTQ Coloradans, and with everyone here today.”


NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Foundation’s mission is to support and protect, as a fundamental right and value, a woman’s freedom to make personal decisions regarding reproductive health care.

NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado’s mission is to develop and sustain a statewide constituency that used the political process to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding reproductive health care.
