Citizens Project


Citizens Project empowers the voiceless in our community, advocating for people of color, the LGBTQ community and others. We provide nonpartisan voter education resources and work to increase voter turnout. For 25 years Citizens Project has been a fearless advocate and an engaging voice that empowers and challenges our entire community to embrace equality, diversity and the separation of church and state.


Frustrated by current divisiveness and political rhetoric and need a place to start? Citizens Project provides an active nonpartisan outlet for fighting discriminatory legislation that affects our region. We are a watchdog that protects the public space, activates the community to effect change, and promotes policies that protect all citizens. We work every day to create a Pikes Peak region in which all voices are heard.


Resources to get a voter guide to every voter in our region, and volunteers to monitor schools or conduct workshops for educators to ensure that every child enjoys an inclusive learning environment.

“Citizens Project actively protects equality in our community — I feel better about my place locally knowing they are watching out for my values!”
