Earlier this week, ProgressNow, a nonprofit that claims to support progressive issues, came out against ColoradoCare/Amendment 69.

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.

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.
