Anyone can champion the cause. Whether you’re speaking out to improve education, reaching out to members of Congress, or volunteering to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. LIVE UNITED is not about Democrat vs. Republican; it’s about understanding our nation’s issues and coming together to solve them.

Updates on Advocacy
- The Child Care Tax Credit is Back! On June 2, 2011, Governor Hickenlooper signed House Bill 1014, removing the 6% trigger necessary for the Tax Credit to be claimed as of January 1, 2013. This means that both the 50% credit as well as the carry-forward credits from previous years will remain in effect.
