Are you ready?

John, America is broken. The most recent murders of Ahmaud Aubrey, Breona Taylor and George Floyd amid the global pandemic of COVID-19 brings to fore the disease of racism in America and we are forced to contend again with answering how much Black life in America matters. But we …

Just checking in

Dear John, How are you? For many of us, it has been almost a month since we began to shelter in place either based on self-diagnosis or by municipal and or state mandate. Our lives have been disrupted in a myriad of ways as we try to process the challenges, grief and even opportu…

Pressing Forward!

John, My heart is full of gratitude for you. When we began this race almost a year ago, none of us knew what the months ahead would bring. However, we knew that this journey would take great conviction, commitment and belief that what we envision for our communities, state and co…

We have 8 days to raise $3770

John, I am so amazed at our campaign. We are the little campaign that dared to do the improbable, believing it is not impossible. We have spent hours driving thousands of miles across our state to meet Coloradans where they are - in their homes, in their favorite neighborhood…

Do we want a progressive champion for us in the US Senate?

John, Last night, we again watched as Presidential candidates debated, and we saw clear differences. I join those who want these things: My Platform For A 21st Century Bill of Human Rights: Provide health care for all Coloradans; Protect our environment for future generatio…

Women on the stage, women in the Senate

John, Did you watch the Democratic Presidential debate last night? Like many that tuned in, I listened closely for a candidate who will represent my values and vision for our country. I was struck by the passion and insight by our Democratic choices. I was also struck that th…

"It always seems impossible, until it is done."

John, We are less than three weeks away from the caucus. This has been an incredible journey. I have driven thousands of miles to meet thousands of Coloradans. Every day, every event, I learned that we all want the same thing for our state - a place where we thrive. I believe…

making a choice

John, Last night’s State of the Union was hard to watch. If anything, it revealed just how divided we are as a country; we are living completely different realities. And it demonstrated that Donald J. Trump is indeed capable of winning another 4 years. For his base, he hit on …

Oh give thanks

Dear John, I didn't make it home to my family this year. Instead, Colorado received a tremendous amount of (much needed) snow, that shifted my plans. While I am saddened to miss my mom's embrace, my dad's request for another plate and the banter between siblings, nieces and ne…

Hey John -- I’ll make this brief - we have just a few more hours to hit our $10,000 goal and close with a strong quarter. We have $893 left to go. This is our last chance to show Hickenlooper and the DSCC that we have the support we need to fight and continue this race to the …

don’t ignore us

There are so many qualified women running to be Colorado’s next Senator, John. Clearly, Stephany is our favorite, but we’re invested in seeing all Coloradan women thrive. If we have a strong FEC filing, the DSCC will have concrete proof that they should reconsider their endors…

listen to women

John, When Hickenlooper announced he was running for Senate after a failed presidential campaign, the DSCC endorsed him without waiting to see who was the best candidate. That’s why I wrote a letter, alongside five other women running to be Colorado’s next Senator and called on …
