Inspiring Women to Represent in Colorado Springs

Have you ever wanted to serve in elected office and rejected the idea because you don’t want to campaign? Come learn what’s involved in running and serving at our Saturday, July 15, event in Colorado Springs. We’ll start by showing the documentary “Represent” and follow it with an intentional networking event with current and former local elected women officials.

“In the heart of the American Midwest, three women take on entrenched political systems in their fight to reshape local politics on their own terms. ‘Represent’ is equal parts personal and political, journeying on and off the campaign trail to tell the stories of female candidates from vastly different communities, support systems, and political parties. The politics may be local, but for these women, the stakes are high.”

  • Date: Saturday, July 15
  • Time: Doors open 1:45 PM
    • Film begins at 2 PM
    • Networking with local elected women officials begins at 3:30 PM
    • Event ends at 4:30 PM
  • Location: The Penrose House, 1661 Mesa Ave., Colorado Springs, CO, 80906

Light refreshments will be served. Registration is free and available through Facebook or EventBrite. Donations would be greatly appreciated so that we can cover our costs and make this event as accessible as possible.

We are partnering with Pikes Peak Women and the Rocky Mountain NAACP to show the film. We are grateful for the generosity of El Pomar Foundation for providing space.

AAPI 2023 Summer Social Dinner

Colorado has zero Asian-American and Pacific Islander (or AAPI) people in the Legislature and – if you wanted a number that reflected the population – there should be four. We’re working to change that. Almost three years ago, Colorado 50-50 brought together a group of volunteers specifically interested in seeing more AAPI women in elected office.

Please join us on Friday, June 30, 6-8 PM for our AAPI Summer Social Dinner where you will meet other fabulous people who are interested in promoting AAPI women in leadership! We’re meeting at the Coark Collective Food Hall at 15775 E. Arapahoe Rd. in Centennial where you may purchase what you would like for dinner. There is no additional fee for this event. An RSVP at would be appreciated.

Have fun discussing politics and policy. Meet women elected officials and candidates. Bring your checkbook in case you meet some you would like to support financially. Get connected with people working on campaigns, hear what campaigns are like, and discover volunteer opportunities. Come hang out with us!
