About New Era Colorado

New Era is the leading voice for young people in Colorado politics and one of the most effective youth civic engagement organizations in the country. We work to reinvent politics for young people, mobilizing and empowering a new generation to participate in our democracy to advance progressive change. We’ve registered over 250,000 young people to vote and driven record young voter turnout. We organize to advance economic justice, abortion rights, climate action, and election access. 

We are early on a journey to embed equity and inclusion in our organization’s day-to-day and DNA, and to transform into a truly anti-racist organization. For us, this means working to authentically center the experiences and leadership of young people of color in our program work; dismantling white supremacy within our organizational systems, policies and culture, and rebuilding anew; and ensuring that we have a thriving, diverse team of staff and board members advancing our mission. We expect all staff to engage enthusiastically in this work.

Our team is deeply dedicated to social change, and takes the work very seriously—but not ourselves. We’ll never miss an opportunity to get a zoomed-in screenshot of you making a weird face in a group photo (and turn it into an emoji) and we hope you have an HBO login to share. We truly believe in the power of young people. Get to know us: Our website | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter

About The Brazen Project

The widespread adoption of laws designed to restrict abortion and the increasingly polarized political climate at the national and statewide levels have left the abortion rights movement at a critical juncture in this country. At the same time, the Millennial and Gen Z generations grew to become the largest, most diverse, and most progressive generation in history—poised to exert an unprecedented impact on our democracy and our culture. As the power of youth advocacy grows on the ground, it is critical that this generation engage proactively in the fight for abortion rights and emerge as a powerful, outspoken constituency on this issue.

The Brazen Project is a Colorado-based, youth-led reproductive rights initiative. We envision a movement for reproductive freedom rooted in and informed by the real experiences of the young people we fight for. For us, this means meeting young people where they’re at and working with them to create a culture without abortion stigma, where folks are not shamed for choosing to speak up or not about their experiences, where pro-abortion access advocacy on college campuses is led by students and where the people with the most institutional power are invested in supporting these efforts for the long-term. We also envision a political climate where protecting and expanding abortion access isn’t seen as a political issue but, instead, a matter of fighting for the dignity and humanity of the most marginalized communities.

This initiative aims to build the awareness, skills, and power of young people on college campuses around the state. We currently organize at CU Boulder, CSU Fort Collins, and on the Auraria campus in Denver, with student cohorts made up of 3-4 part-time Campus Organizing Fellows on each campus. Fellows are the core of the program as they lead the implementation of our abortion access education and pro-abortion access conversations with their peers throughout the semester to achieve this vision. They also participate in delivering feedback and informing the strategy of the program – addressing gaps, brainstorming creative new tactics, and building this program to exist at its greatest potential.
