Event description
Colorado Senior Lobby Presents A Capitol Affair – a day under the dome for learning about aging issues and how to be an advocate.

About this Event

Colorado Senior Lobby announces A Capitol Affair at the Colorado State Capitol, 200 E. Colfax Ave., Denver on Monday, January 27, 2020 from 8am to 3pm.

Seating is limited - purchase your ticket today.

Your ticket supports Colorado Senior Lobby outreach!

This event will focus on legislative initiatives affecting older adults in the 2020 General Assembly and the importance of citizen involvement with legislative matters.

  • Colorado Senior Lobby focuses on issues that improve the quality of life and well-being of aging Coloradans. While remaining non-partisan, we promote a better understanding of aging, enhance engagement in community and provide training and orientation to becoming an effective advocate.
  • YOU can make a difference in the lives of older Coloradans in many ways. Talk to us; we’ll show you how. Very few of our current volunteers started with the knowledge they needed to be effective advocates - it’s a learned skill.

A Capitol Affair will feature presentations by Colorado legislators on legislative initiatives affecting older adults that have emerged during this general assembly. Advocacy specialists will share tips and tricks for lobbying. Following the morning program, attendees will have the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned by meeting with their legislators and attending committee hearings. All ages are invited to learn about the value of advocating and to register as a Volunteer Lobbyist with the State of Colorado.
