Serving as Colorado's Government Watchdog Since 1971

One of our most important jobs as citizens is to monitor our public leaders and hold them accountable for their actions. Colorado has a rich history of doing just that. From passing the nation’s first open meetings law in 1972 to creating the Colorado Independent Ethics Commission in 2006, we have fought to create a government that is open, transparent, and accountable to all Coloradans. And we’re not done yet.

Ethics & Accountability Campaigns...

Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition

We’re dedicated to helping Coloradans access public information.

Monitor & Enforce Public Ethics

Coloradans need a strong, independent body to monitor and enforce public ethics.

Public Records & Meetings

We’ve fought to create laws that guarantee Coloradans can access public records and meetings. Now we’re working to bring those laws into the 21st Century.
