Colorado Rising Action is a 501(c)(4) organization focused on holding liberal groups and their special interest networks accountable and advancing conservative principles. We’re fighting for limited government, lowering taxes, fighting government over-regulation that stifles freedom, affordable and accessible health care, free enterprise, and a strong national security.
We hold liberal groups and their special interest networks accountable, fact-check left-wing politicians whose policies would push our nation in the wrong direction, and ensure citizens have the most accurate, up-to-date information to drive a balanced policy conversation on national issues.
Here’s how we do it:
We have eyes and ears on the ground in Colorado tracking liberal special interest groups and candidates for federal office.
Not only are we keeping track of what left-wing politicians are saying now, we also keep a fact-checking record and hold politicians accountable.
Rapid Response. Timing is everything. We’ll be communicating in real time with reporters and directly with Coloradans with the latest and more relevant information.
