Radical and extreme! Haven’t we heard that accusation more than once during past Colorado campaigns? Indeed, we have. Pundits tend to forget that campaign consultants, much as other professionals, are subject to the influence of “Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.” If you are of a proper age you will recall the response to Sputnik in the American classroom: New Math and Boolean algebra. It required a decade before educators would acknowledge that high school students could no longer multiply or divide.

An interesting thing happened on the way to NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado’s 2016 Annual Gala and Silent Auction: after an escalation of both physical and legislative attacks on reproductive rights over the past year, it is on track to be one of our biggest events ever in terms of attendance. We are including a very special award to Vicki Cowart and in honor of the staff of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for their leadership and literal courage under fire after the domestic terrorism attack on the Colorado Springs clinic. They truly embody their motto, care “no matter what.” Our event’s success reflects what we know: Colorado is a pro-choice state, and we have been since before NARAL was founded 40 years ago.
