Representative Crisanta Duran for Colorado, leader of the Colorado House Democrats, received the Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award from EMILY’s List today! An awesome honor from the nation’s largest resource for women in politics.
“I’ve fought for progressive change here in Colorado, and it’s because of the work EMILY’s List does that I have more women than ever fighting beside me all across the country,” Duran said. “The Rising Star Award is my favorite example of EMILY’s List’s commitment to building the pipeline — the work we all do at the state and local level is every bit as important to women and families as what happens in Washington. At times it can be tough, but I will never give up. The stakes are just too important for the communities I love.”
