“In school boards and city councils, we’re building a political movement that works for the many and not just the wealthy, privileged, and powerful few,” Wendy Howell, the organization's state director, said in a statement. “Not only is it essential that the voices of the people shape critical local decision-making, but electing progressive champions to local offices today also means progressive champions in the state legislature and in Congress tomorrow.”

The Working Families Party said it stands for "building a multiracial, multigenerational, and feminist movement of working people to transform America." The Colorado chapter of the national network started in 2017.
