COLOR, with deep gratitude and sadness announces the departure of Policy Director, Karla Gonzales Garcia, from COLOR at the end of this month.

All of our groundbreaking legislative work would not have been possible without Garcia, who has been fearlessly leading for communities of color at the Capitol for the past five years. Just this year, Garcia led our efforts to pass Senate Bill 9 — a plan that was years in the making and made possible by her mind, heart, and meaningful relationships.

In her five years with us, Garcia has won numerous awards and served her community at the highest level, including receiving the 2020 Colorado Champion of Economic Justice & Equity award from Colorado Center on Law and Policy; the Colorado Community Advocate of the Year award from Cobalt; and was chosen to be a part of the U.S. Delegation on Reproductive Health and Sexual Violence in Medellin, Colombia. Garcia was also appointed to the Colorado Governor’s “Health Care Cost Analysis Task Force,” where she has been working towards health care accessibility and affordability for all Coloradans regardless of immigration status.

Garcia is known for her commitment to undocumented communities and ensuring they are not left out of important legislation that would better the lives of our families. We are eternally grateful that she leaves that legacy with us. Her passion, laughter, and brilliance will be noticeably missed by our COLOR familia, and we wish her endless abundance and success in this next journey.

We owe you so much, Karlita. Adelante!
