We hosted our first “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol” on Friday, March 18. Even with the inclement weather, more than 70 advocates participated at the Colorado State Capitol, sharing their stories and experiences with legislators to shift the perception of hunger and ensure every Coloradan has the fuel they need to thrive. Read more and view photos from the day.
Weren’t able to participate but still want to use your voice? Visit our online advocacy center to sign up for alerts and stay up-to-date on what’s happening at the Colorado State Capitol. We’ll notify you when lawmakers are considering bills and proposals that impact the nearly 1 in 7 Coloradans who struggle with hunger.
Hunger Through My Lens, a photovoice advocacy project led by real-life experts and facilitated by Hunger Free Colorado, aims to shed light on the reality of hunger in our communities to encourage critical dialogue and create change. Participants from the Denver metro area, San Luis Valley and Roaring Fork Valley are sharing their personal stories through photos and quotes that are on display via traveling exhibits. View current and upcoming exhibitions.
NOTE: Some of the participants, along with the project manager, may be on-site during select times at each exhibit to answer questions and provide information about the project.
