For the past year we've advocated for House Bill 22-1107: Inclusive Higher Education Opportunities.

All of the hard work has paid off - the bill passed and was signed by Colorado Governor Jared Polis! 

There is an increasing demand for college options for students with intellectual disability in Colorado. It is time for more campuses to open their doors to students with ID. To make that possible, we need your help. For our year end goal, we aim to raise $38,000. This amount creates one permanent pathway for individuals with intellectual disability to attend college in Colorado!
