About the messenger:
Colorado Families First supports Proposition 118 to provide paid family leave to working Coloradans. The measure would set up an insurance-like system with copayments by employees and employers that would fund up to four weeks of leave to care for themselves, a new child or a seriously ill family member.

Much of the group's funding comes from national dark money nonprofit Sixteen Thirty Fund, as well as the North Fund, the Fairness PRoject and Denver philantropist Merle Chambers.
