Thank you to the loyal readers and supporters of The Colorado Independent (2013-2020). The Indy has merged with the new nonprofit Colorado News Collaborative (COLab) on a new mission to strengthen local news in Colorado. We hope you will join us!
A lifelong news addict, Laurie has held management positions with the National Civic League, the Bell Policy Center, and the bi-partisan statewide ballot campaign, Yes on Referenda C and D. She has served as executive director of two Denver-based nonprofits as well as vice president for community initiatives and investment for the Women’s Foundation of Colorado. Most recently a consultant for nonprofits and foundations, she built a national education initiative for Rocky Mountain PBS. In joining The Independent, Laurie decided to stop complaining about the state of the news industry and start building it instead.
