Scrivner Policy Roundtable: The State of Aging with the Bell Policy Center
The Scrivner Institute of Public Policy hosted the second Scrivner Policy Roundtable, a recurring event series with the aim of building a network and collaborative research and learning environment among local policy organizations.
This roundtable was presented by the Bell Policy Center and focused on the state of aging in Colorado. The collection of quality, replicable data has largely been absent in relation to Colorado's aging community. As one of the fastest aging states in the country, this poses a significant problem for our state, and has been a roadblock to ensuring quality outcomes for older Coloradans. To fill this sizeable hole, the Bell Policy Center developed an inaugural State of Aging report to assess not only how older Coloradans are currently doing, but to provide information on both the systems supportive of these outcomes and indicators of future success.

Scrivner Policy Roundtable: Housing Affordability with Common Sense Institute
The Scrivner Institute recently launched the Scrivner Policy Roundtable, a new recurring event series with the aim of building a network and collaborative research and learning environment among local policy organizations. Each roundtable event features a presentation by a roundtable member on a specific element of their policy work, followed by a facilitated, robust discussion on the policy issue at hand.
Our first Roundtable focused on housing affordability in Colorado and was presented by Common Sense Institute. The Roundtable presenters were CSI's 2021 Terry J. Stevinson Fellows, Evelyn Lim and Peter LiFari. With an influx in the Colorado population over the last twenty years, housing affordability has quickly become a pressing issue in many parts of the state. While this is not an issue unique to Colorado and its major urban areas, it remains an important issue to maintain Colorado's quality of life and economic competitiveness.

Policy Perspectives: Gun Reform Politics in Colorado
The Josef Korbel School of International Studies is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new partnership between the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy and the Center on American Politics, which will serve as the hub for dialogue and research on the nexus of policy and politics in Colorado and beyond.
For the partnership's inaugural event, we convened a substantive civil dialogue around gun control and reform, a timely issue of utmost importance in Colorado and across the United States. Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO) of Colorado's 1st Congressional District and attorney and former Colorado State Representative Cole Wist shared their perspectives and work on gun legislation at the state and national level and how policy and politics intersect to inform action on gun control.
