2023 Scorecard

At Voces Unidas, we like transparency. This is why we track and publish every vote by lawmakers against our legislative priorities. We score every one of our priority bills and then rate each lawmaker based on their actual votes. We invite you look at our scorecard and take a look at how each lawmaker voted.

2023 Legislative Priorities

Here is a list of possible bills/issues that we are actively engaged in. Our position on the bill will be noted once it is introduced. Once the bill is introduced, you can track its progress in the Bill Tracker. 

       Tier 1

  • Water Quality — This possible bill would address water quality in mobile home parks. This directly impacts many residents in our communities and is in alignment with the Colorado Latino Policy Agenda. 

  • Language Justice in Emergency Response — This possible bill would incentivize language justice in emergency response. Given the recent fires and floods in our area, this directly impacts many of our communities.


Tier 2
  • Rent Control — This possible bill would give counties and municipalities the right to pass local rent control measures. This directly impacts many residents in our communities and is in alignment with the Colorado Latino Policy Agenda. 

  • Others TBD


Tier 3 | TBD
  • Just Cause Evictions — This possible bill would outline the legal grounds for when a landlord can evict a tenant or refuse to renew a tenant’s lease. 

  • Gun Reform — These possible bills would address the sale of assault weapons. 

  • Stopping Disinformation and Deceptive Practices  — This bill would prohibit the use of deceptive advertising and dangerous treatments by anti-abortion centers.

  • Protecting Providers and Patients  — This bill will protect legally-protected health care patients, providers, and helpers.

  • Insurance Coverage for Reproductive Health Care — This bill would close several access gaps related to abortion care.  

  • Language Access in Insurance Documents — This bill requires insurance documents to have certified translation.  

  • Others TBD
