  • Congressional Art Competition

    This annual contest is underway, and all eligible high school students in our community with a passion for visual arts are encouraged to apply. The winner will travel to DC, where your art will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol.
  • Gun Violence Prevention

    Americans are demanding that Congress pass sensible gun safety legislation. I'm continuing my ongoing work to make these reforms a reality, which will help keep all of our communities safer.
  • Fulfilling DACA's Promise

    President Trump's decision to rescind DACA is a crushing blow to more than 17,000 DREAMers in Colorado, but our fight isn't over. I will continue working to pass legislation, such as the Dream Act, that helps these young men and women remain in this country and achieve their American dream.
  • Representing Unity, Repudiating Hate

    President Trump should be working to build an administration that promotes unity. Instead, he is appointing advisors and considering cabinet nominees who have proven divisive. I urge Mr. Trump to change course and pledge to be a president who represents all Americans.
