It is a strategic priority of Colorado Christian University to impact our culture in support of traditional family values, sanctity of life, compassion for the poor, Biblical view of human nature, limited government, personal freedom, free markets, natural law, original intent of the Constitution, and Western civilization.
We do many things to impact the culture in this way including speaker lectures, research, publications, student training, as well as direct lobbying at the Colorado state capitol. During the 2019 legislative session, the Centennial Institute scored ten bills and provided extra credit for two additional bills.
This past legislative session demonstrated that the Colorado legislature is leading our state in opposition to Biblical values. The bills that passed threaten parental rights, the sanctity of life, religious freedom, free markets, and the original intent of the Constitution.
We hope this scorecard will help you understand how Colorado legislators are voting on bills that directly affect you and your family. In spite of the challenges we faced in the legislature, there are legislators working to protect our values. Those legislators with a score of nine or better in our scorecard are honored each year at the Western Conservative Summit with the Faith, Family, and Freedom Award. This year, we have thirty legislators deserving of this award.
If you are interested in being more proactive in shaping Colorado public policy, we hope you will join our legislative activist network titled Centennial Frontline.
For faith, family, and freedom,
Director, Centennial Institute
