Faith Winter was elected to the Colorado Legislature after seven years on the Westminster City Council, where she was a leader on renewable energy, championed small business support and services for survivors of domestic violence. Winter represents Senate District 24, and serves as the Chair of Transportation and Energy and Vice Chair of Health and Human Services. During the 2015 legislative session, Winter sponsored a key component of the Colorado Ready to Work jobs package — a bill that allows high schools to provide coursework that will count toward graduation and toward apprenticeship programs in high-demand professions. In 2016 Winter passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and continues to champion paid leave policies. In 2017 Winter passed an energy efficiency standard. In 2018 she secured funding for transportation and in 2019 she championed Legislative Workplace Conduct. Winter is past chairwoman of the Adams County Housing Authority and is the founding executive director of Emerge Colorado, and current National Program Director for VoteRunLead, which works to engage women in the political process. Winter loves organizing because she believes the best way to create change is by building power through people.
