  • Preserving Colorado's Wild Places

    The Colorado Wilderness Act of 2018 will protect approximately 740,000 acres of pristine land, helping secure our state's proud outdoor heritage and push back on the Trump Administration's assault on our last remaining wild places.
  • 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.
