We recognize that many organizations statewide are already doing good work exploring options to address the fiscal and constitutional challenges facing our state, and some are organizing for possible campaigns. Based on the Referendum C experience, many of us found it valuable to meet regularly to share information, and eventually, to seek a common way forward.
We want to replicate that process through this Roundtable, but we do NOT seek to force consensus too quickly or to prematurely impose a structure on a diverse range of creative efforts. We DO hope to create an informal environment through which we can all learn from one another, build trust and start to seek consensus.
We do not envision a group with limited membership, as we have learned that success requires a large, diverse and committed coalition. All we ask is that if you elect to participate, you share our honest concerns about the fiscal condition of the state and the difficulties created by competing provisions in our constitution, and that you are willing to work for change.

Fiscal Education Project
The Colorado Reform Roundtable is partnering with the Colorado Nonprofit Association in an effort to engage more 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in fiscal and constitutional reform discussions. The joint effort is called the Fiscal Education Project. Although the 18-month project is still in its early stages, some preliminary researc has been done regarding how to talk about these issues with Coloradans.
