February Briefing --  Tuesday, February 21, 2023 5:30 PM via Zoom

Preschool Briefing February 2023 PNG

In 2006, LWVDenver endorsed a ballot issue that would, with a .15% increase in city sales tax, create the Denver Preschool Program. League positions have always supported a quality and equitable public school system, pre-K-12. The proposal only seemed to make sense—an investment in quality care and education for Denver four year olds. DPP not only provides tuition credits for families, based on a sliding income scale, but also works with preschools to improve and ensure quality programming. 

On Tuesday, February 21, Elsa Holguín, president and CEO of Denver Preschool Program (DPP), will be the presenter at the LWVDenver briefing at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom. She will present an update on the continuing development and success of the program.   Plan to attend this briefing and invite your friends and family with preschool aged children.

Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Denver, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, has fought since the 1930s to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan. We neither support nor oppose candidates for office. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. The League:
  • Acts as a force to create positive, lasting change in our community
  • Empowers voters to protect their right to vote
  • Educates citizens and fosters dialogue on pertinent issues - from health care and climate change to openness in government
  • Strives to ensure that all votes are counted and all voices are heard
  • Works to preserve our constitutional rights
  • Partners with others to make democracy work
We believe that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship are essential for civic improvement. Our enduring vitality and resonance come from our membership, which is open to all people 16 years of age and older.
