Policy Perspectives: Gun Reform Politics in Colorado
The Josef Korbel School of International Studies is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new partnership between the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy and the Center on American Politics, which will serve as the hub for dialogue and research on the nexus of policy and politics in Colorado and beyond.
For the partnership's inaugural event, we convened a substantive civil dialogue around gun control and reform, a timely issue of utmost importance in Colorado and across the United States. Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO) of Colorado's 1st Congressional District and attorney and former Colorado State Representative Cole Wist shared their perspectives and work on gun legislation at the state and national level and how policy and politics intersect to inform action on gun control.
