Children deserve the BEST from our community!
It’s About Kids (IAK) is the Colorado Children’s Campaign’s statewide, grassroots advocacy network. It is comprised of over 2,600 health, early childhood and K-12 education professionals, community and business leaders, policymakers, parents and other engaged citizens joined together by their concern for the well-being of Colorado’s children.

- voicing the unique needs and characteristics of the children in their communities
- Engaging in regular dialogue and information exchange with Children’s Campaign policy staff to help shape and support the legislative agenda
- Establishing and maintaining relationships with policymakers and the media and their communities.
