SPECIAL Colorado Senior Lobby Legislative Committee Meeting (LCM)
Join us for Citizen Lobbyist Training offered by Colorado Senior Lobby – “Take a Deeper Dive in Citizen Lobbyist Training”
Location: Senior Planet Center
Address: 7585 E. Academy Blvd., Denver, CO 80230

Our Colorado Senior Lobby (CSL) Citizen Lobbyist Training is “non-partisan citizen lobbyist training” for someone who wants to influence policy and not just discuss policy. Colorado Senior Lobby was organized in 1980 as a non-partisan organization committed to enhancing the life of seniors through education and analysis of legislation as it impacts seniors, along with encouraging citizen lobbying by Colorado Senior Lobby members and members of the community to testify on bills. This event is being hosted at Senior Planet. Senior Planet offers technology training programs to older adults through an ever-growing network of community partners around Colorado. Covering everything from computer basics to starting an online business, these courses, lectures, and workshops are designed specifically for older adult learners.

Thank you for attending Senior Day at the Capitol 2018

Governor John Hickenlooper addressing the crowd at Senior Day at the Capitol 2018

You did it!

You filled the Capitol with Your Presence, Your Voice and we hope you enjoyed your day!

We live streamed the morning session through our YouTube Channel and recorded the event. MetMedia is working on finalized versions which we will post on our YouTube Channel. For right now we have the unedited version of the morning session – all 3 hours of it! The morning session was hosted in the Old Supreme Court Chambers of the Denver Capitol.

“You have one of the most tremendous resources before you today which is an organization tuned into your issues that will actually take the time to train you how to be a citizen lobbyist. I really encourage you to take advantage of it …”
