Immigrant Nonprofit Loses Funding Over LGBT Issue

An LGBT organization in Colorado is raising money for a non-profit that’s losing its funding for being loosely affiliated with them. The Catholic Conference of Bishops said it will no longer give money to Companeros because it’s too closely tied to the LGBT group. 

Bente Birkeland has more on the story.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
