Voces Unidas Action Fund engages Latino and other progressive voters to increase voter turnout and win on issues.
Based in the central-mountain region of Colorado, we work on municipal, county, state and federal elections.
We also endorse and support candidates for public office who are aligned with our mission and will champion our issues. When we endorse, we work hard to ensure that our endorsed candidates are successful. While independent, Voces Unidas has affiliated political committees that also support our endorsed candidates.
Our 2023 Endorsements
Colorado Latino Agenda
A research initiative of Voces Unidas and COLOR
Launched in 2021, the Colorado Latino Agenda (CLA) is a statewide public research initiative co-led by Voces Unidas and Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR) that publishes relevant and timely in-depth reports about Latinas and Latinos in Colorado.
The Colorado Latino Policy Agenda (CLPA) is our annual, nonpartisan report designed to provide insights into the demographic makeup and views of Latino voters in Colorado on pressing policy, political, and social issues.
The Colorado Latino Exit Poll is conducted every two years on Election Day to capture Latino voter trends, preferences and values.
What’s on the mind of Latino voters?
Voces Unidas Action Fund had 1,900 phone conversations with registered Latino voters in Garfield, Eagle, Pitkin, Lake, and Summit counties in spring of 2022. These conversations are part of our year-round base-building work to learn about the local, state and federal issues that are top-of-mind with Latino voters in advance of the June 28 primary election and November general election.
Process for Endorsements
We support candidates who are aligned with our values and positions on policy issues. We focus on candidates who would represent the mountain region. We also take positions on local and statewide ballot questions.
Our endorsement process is now open for the 2023 election cycle.
We will consider endorsements for candidates for municipal, CMC and school board races in Summit, Lake, Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties.
Our process consists of a candidate questionnaire and an interview with our endorsement committee.

2023-2024 Endorsement Committee
Our endorsement committee is made up of approximately 6-12 members from the central mountain/western slope region. These leaders help decide who we endorse as an organization. Not all names of the members of the endorsement committee are made public as some prefer to keep their political involvement private. The CEO of Voces Unidas appoints members to the endorsement committee at the beginning of each calendar year.
