Child Health Champions Campaign

Join grassroots advocacy network at Children’s Hospital Colorado for the latest in child health policy

Children’s Hospital Colorado’s mission of serving Wyoming’s kids extends beyond solely clinical care. It also aims to speak up for kids in Wyoming, and across the nation, when public policy decisions are being made that may affect the health and safety of children. Their advocacy efforts rely on the strength and action of the Child Health Champions, a grassroots advocacy network of more than 6,500 advocates, from both Colorado and Wyoming, who speak up clearly and powerfully for kids. Champions write emails, make phone calls, tweet legislators and share information when needed to influence public policies that affect kids in Wyoming, Colorado and at the national level. If you’re interested in joining the grassroots network, sign up here and email advocacy@childrenscolorado.org with any questions.
