"Colorado Ceasefire began in the 2000 election cycle. After the Colorado General Assembly failed to pass significant gun violence prevention laws following the Columbine High School shooting, a small group of committed individuals formed a PAC (political action committee) to remove from office legislators who were a block to progress. That year six critical races turned hands, and we felt that we had made a significant contribution to those changes. We then realized 'We have a voice at the capitol; we cant stop now!' ..and so an organization was born."
