DENVER: Tomorrow, a group of women will be making a tour of Denver television stations to deliver a new report from the Center for American Progress Action Fund. CAP Action is releasing a report that outlines the many ways that Cory Gardner’s extreme policies hurt Colorado women and families. His conservative record extends from his views on reproductive rights to opposing workplace policies that would allow women to get ahead–and not just get by.

Allison Zelman, Managing Director of the Women’s Initiative at CAP Action, will be available to answer questions about the report at each stop, and will give a statement at the final stop in front of NBC/Channel 9 at 2:30pm in advance of the US Senate debate Wednesday evening.

In addition to the report CAP Action, ProgressNow Colorado Education and 9to5 Colorado are hosting a half day strategy summit in Denver to discuss women’s economic security and what agenda needs to be implemented to achieve equality for women and families in the workplace at the History Colorado Museum from 9am-1pm.

WHAT: Walking press conference
WHEN: Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
WHERE: Walk begins at Colorado History Museum (1200 Broadway) at 1:30pm.
Stop at CBS/Channel 4 from 1:35-1:45pm
Stop at ABC/Channel 7 from 1:55-2:05
Stop at FOX31 from 2:10-2:20
Final stop at NBC/Channel 9 2:25-2:45
