I'm having trouble changing colors in the theme

We’re using the UUA theme with a child theme. I’m trying to change some of the colors used in the theme, but I’m having trouble getting the new colors to be recognized.
For example, I want to change the red used in the grey-red theme to a blue.
I found the code for the red (AB1B42) searched main.css for all instances of it and copied those selectors to my child theme css using the code for the new blue color. The child theme coding is ignored, unless I use “!important” after each of my declarations. Then the color is recognized, but that also has some unintended effects, such as overriding some other font colors.
Can someone suggest how I might go about changing these colors?
