Colorado Rights Blog


  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

  • Our membership has quadrupled in the last six months, making it possible to do more than ever to protect civil rights and civil liberties in Colorado. Thank you to all our new members, supporters, and donors, and the ones who’ve been with us for years.

Boulder District Attorney Candidate Forum

Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) and cosponsors, including Boulder Chapter League of Women Voters, Showing Up for Racial Justice Boulder (BSURJ), ACLU of Colorado, Rocky Mountain Peace & Justice Center, and Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder’s Racial Justice Ministry welcome you to attend our midterm Boulder District Attorney candidate forum.

What do you know about your DA? Did you know district attorneys are some of the most influential players in the entire criminal justice system? Did you know district attorneys have a significant amount of discretion that can change someone’s life forever? Did you know all 22 Judicial Districts in Colorado have a Head District Attorney that’s an elected official?

What kind of questions do you want answered by your future DA? We invite you to join us for an evening to really get to know the candidates and make sure you are an informed constituent.

June 26 is the election for the next Boulder District Attorney. If you’re mailing your ballot, we recommend that you mail it no later than June 21.

Wednesday, May 30 at 6 PM – 7:30 PM
