Gig work bill disproportionately impacts Colorado communities of color

Apr 21, 2023

Every family and every community in Colorado should have equitable access to the essential goods and services they need — including access to nutritious food and reliable transportation. As the leading voice for racial equity in the Rocky Mountain region, we know that is far from the case today, as Black families here and across the country are bearing the brunt of rising inflation. This can be especially crushing in a city like Denver, which is facing the second highest rate of grocery inflation in the country. Looking at the cost of eggs, fresh vegetables or even milk has become completely unaffordable for many lower-wealth communities.

The Rocky Mountain NAACP proudly serves as the state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The Rocky Mountain State Conference works to serve the community to bring about equality, equity, and social justice as part of the 114-year history of the NAACP.
