Yadira Caraveo is a first-term Representative from Adams County. In her first session, she carried legislation to make sure that Coloradans receive comprehensive human sexuality education, promoting consent in school curriculum, de-stigmatizing reproductive health care, and ensuring that Colorado schools are inclusive for LGBTQ+ students.

Steve Fenberg was elected to the Colorado Senate in 2016 and currently serves as the Senate Majority Leader. He has focused on increasing voting access, advancing renewable energy adoption, and protecting civil and human rights, including banning the practice of gay conversion therapy and increasing access to talk therapy for youth.
