League of Women Voters Colorado 2021. 

The League’s mission is “Empowering Voters, Defending Democracy,” and for over 100 years, we’ve been both a trusted source of nonpartisan information, enabling citizens to make informed votes while advocating for advocating for safe, secure and accessible elections for all. LWV of Colorado again actively worked with the CO legislators last year to pass many bills addressing league policies of election security, education, housing, fiscal policy, social equity, and much more; in fact, the League took a support or oppose stance on 99 bills during the 2021 session, and we had a 93% success rate, with 92 bills being passed or not according to League stance. The League actively partners with other organizations to ensure justice and equity are experienced by all Coloradans and that our state remains the gold standard of election access and security. LWVCO has increased its support to our 18 local leagues through leadership meetings, grants and direct funding to ensure a strong grassroots network and collective voice.

Join us as Karen Sheek, LWV Colorado President brings us up-to-date on the state league's activities and goals.

Karen Sheek is a retired middle school educator and business owner. She and her husband moved to southwest Colorado in the mid-seventies when John, a National Park Service law enforcement ranger, was transferred to Mesa Verde. Karen and a partner opened an off-site catering business in 1998 that was a mainstay in the community for almost 20 years. In October 2011, Karen was chosen to fill a vacancy on the Cortez City Council. After completing the term, she ran and won two 4-year terms, serving as mayor during six of those years. She is proud to have worked on water conservation initiatives during her term and to have supported the purchase and renovation of a new City Hall. During her tenure, she established regular office hours for the Mayor and began a monthly column to keep the community informed about city government. She loved her time on Council and learned a lot about local government and her community. She continues to exercise her interest in politics and community through her work with her local League of Women Voters and as State President of the Colorado League.
