Colorado Rising Action - About Us

Colorado Rising Action has been established as a 501(c)(4) organization focused on holding liberal groups and their special interest networks accountable and advancing conservative principles.  such as limited government, lowering taxes, fighting government over-regulation that stifles freedom, free enterprise, a strong national security, and shaping the public policy debate in the Centennial State.

We hold liberal groups and their special interest networks accountable, fact-checks left-wing politicians whose policies would push the state in the wrong direction, and ensures citizens have the most accurate, up-to-date information to drive a balanced policy conversation in the state.

Here’s how we do it:

  1. We have eyes and ears on the ground in Colorado tracking liberal special interest groups and the politicians they represent
  2. 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
  3. 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

We’re putting this system in place across Colorado, and focusing on important issues, like ill-conceived tax hikes, affordable energy production, funding for our crumbling infrastructure, promoting school choice, and continuing our strong economy.
