URL: https://thetaborfoundation.org/proposition-123-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-affordable-housing-measure-on-colorados-ballot/#more-3653/

Description: In 2022, Coloradans for Affordable Housing Now put forward Proposition 123, which proposed setting aside 0.1% of state income tax revenue for affordable housing programs, to help ease the state’s affordable housing crisis. The measure was anticipated to earmark about 2% of income tax revenues, or nearly $300 million in its first fiscal year. It would include aid to develop more housing and provide assistance for certain renters and home buyers. The measure would leave the state’s income tax rate unchanged, but would reduce the amount refunded to voters under TABOR provisions. Fiscal conservatives, including the TABOR Foundation, were opposed to the measure, seeing it as a hidden tax reducing refunds to taxpayers. The measure passed with more than 52% of votes in favor.

Title: At ‘Longer Tables,’ shared meals connect people and combat loneliness

URL: https://www.cpr.org/2022/11/08/denver-longer-tables-potluck-meals/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=denverite&utm_campaign=denverite20221109/

Description: In October 2022, Denverite Tim Jones hosted his 40th “longer table” event in Denver’s City Park. Part of the larger Longer Table movement, these events are social networking dinners that bring together strangers to share a potluck meal. The events are intended to build community and decrease loneliness, and as such, guests are required to sit with people they didn’t know prior, and may not discuss their jobs. This CPR.org article reports on the October event, the movement itself, and Jones’s plans to throw a similar event for 5,280 people, stretching a mile long in City Park, in 2023.

Title: Denver Public Library Workers United

URL: https://www.dplworkersunited.com/

Description: In June 2021, feeling a growing disconnect between the library’s mission and its working conditions for staff, more than ten percent of Denver Public Library employees joined together to launch a voluntary, wall-to-wall union. Affiliated with the Communications Workers of America, “Denver Public Library Workers United” (DPLWU) is a unit of CWA Local 7799, a small consortium of four Colorado-based public service unions. While the Denver City Charter currently forbids union recognition or collective bargaining by the Library, DPLWU asserts that a “wall-to-wall union allows us to channel our collective knowledge and wisdom into powerful collective action.”
