Citizens Project was created 20 years ago in response to Colorado’s Amendment 2 and the climate that made its passage possible. Executive Director Kristy Milligan came by to talk about the mission of the organization and a few of the many ways that Citizens Project has contributed to civilizing Colorado Springs.

The 20th Anniversary celebration will occur this evening, Thursday, August 2nd, in the Carnegie Room at the Penrose Library, 20 N Cascade Ave. from 5:30pm to 7pm.

A special Story Project event highlighting Citizens Project will be presented at Marmalade at Smokebrush Friday, August 10th at 7pm.
