It would seem that the vitriolic rhetoric circulating our media is something new, but unfortunately, it’s been occurring since the founding of the country. From controversial land grabs from the Native Americans to the influx of immigrant workers to the brave families escaping war and famine, immigration is an integral part of our nation’s history. Therefore, it’s incumbent upon us to educate ourselves on immigration so we can prepare for a better future.Find out more »

Join us Thursday 12/6 as we celebrate Cervezas for Causes with Colorado Rapid Response Network - Immigration
Each week Cervecería Colorado partners with a non-profit to have a celebratory happy hour with proceeds benefiting that non-profit.
Colorado Rapid Response Network - Immigration is a hotline activates our more than 300 trained volunteers around the state to go to the site of an immigration raid and document what is happening. If it’s not an immigration raid, we dispel rumors and calm fears in the community. This prohibits certain kinds of unconstitutional ICE activities and promotes community trust, so that all people, regardless of immigration status, will feel safe going to school, reporting crimes, and accessing public health and human service programs, among other things. We are a network of concerned and committed groups and volunteers who want to shine a light on potential injustice - and create the space for change where warranted.Find out more »
We live in polarized times. As red and blue states fracture and political discourse turns increasingly hostile, sober analysis of the left/right divide is needed more than ever. How can the President be seen by some as a savvy businessman with the courage to take on a corrupt political system, while others see a narcissist-in-chief whose buffoonery would be laughable if not so dangerous? Why is the contrast in perception so sharp on issue after issue, from climate change to immigration, MeToo to Judge Kavanaugh? In a wide-ranging discussion, Dr. Mark Horowitz will demonstrate that the left/right divide runs much deeper than political philosophy. Indeed, liberals and conservatives differ not just in politics but in personality; not just in beliefs but in cognitive styles, characteristic emotions, and even food and leisure pursuits. Come hear Dr. Horowitz discuss why we see the world so differently and what this could mean for our ability to achieve progress in our fractured country and around the world.Find out more »
