Bringing together thought leaders and decision makers to progress Colorado’s top issues.

2024 Inaugural Colorado Public Affairs Forum

PBS12 is hosting the inaugural Confluence, our community’s first-ever event bringing together leaders from across our state from business, nonprofit, and government sectors to have meaningful conversations around how to address Colorado’s most pressing challenges and how to catalyze progress and change.

Backed by statewide data, we will dive deeply into three key areas that impact our entire state: mental health, inflation and affordability, and access to childcare. The Confluence will highlight stories of people and organizations who are making strides and championing these three issues, and we need your help to identify those folks who are doing incredible work in these spaces.


We are looking for nominations for leaders, individuals, and/or organizations across the state that have played a meaningful role in the following areas:

  • Mental health and access to care
  • Making Colorado more affordable in any area such as housing, the cost of doing business, food insecurity, or others
  • Creating better access to childcare and early childcare education.
