Denver, CO– Tomorrow, on Thursday, November 12 at 4:00 PM, Representative Brianna Titone will be presented with the National Foundation for Women Legislators’ (NFWL) 2020 Elected Women of Excellence Award during an awards ceremony via Zoom.
According to NFWL, ‘This award was created to identify women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities. These pacesetters have engendered an environment where women can now serve in public office and fight for the issues they are passionate about. This year we have seen the amazing work our elected women have led during these difficult times.’
Ahead of receiving the award, Rep. Titone released the following statement:
“I am honored to have been selected by my peers to receive this important award,” said Rep. Brianna Titone, D-Arvada. “I deeply appreciate the work that NFWL does to empower and support women legislators, and I’m humbled to be recognized today. As a trans woman, I have faced considerable barriers on the road to becoming an elected official, but I’m more resolute than ever to continue breaking those barriers for those who will come after me. As we prepare for another legislative session, I’m ready and eager to get back to work and ensure that we build back a better, more just Colorado for all.”
According to their website, ‘Since 1938, NFWL has served as a forum for elected women from across the country to be empowered through information and experience. As the oldest organization for elected women in America and the ONLY one that includes women on the city, county and state levels, we encourage our members to take leadership roles and form connections across the aisle. We know that only by working together, can we achieve our goals.’
