Who is the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition?

Our mission is to reverse the trend of mass incarceration in Colorado. We are a coalition of nearly 7,000 individual members and over 100 faith and community organizations who have united to stop perpetual prison expansion in Colorado through policy and sentence reform.

Our chief areas of interest include drug policy reform, women in prison, racial injustice, the impact of incarceration on children and families, the problems associated with re-entry and stopping the practice of using private prisons in our state.

If you would like to be involved please go to our website and become a member.

Time Changes On Sunday

Does it feel too early in the year? It is...

Coloradans will spring forward Sunday morning, when 2 a.m. suddenly becomes 3 a.m. and daylight-saving time rules the clocks.

Sunday evening's sunset will be an hour later, at 7:01 p.m., and daylight should linger another half-hour or so after that.

But Monday morning, when most people return to work or school, it will look extra dark.

Some cell phones and computers will move forward an hour automatically early Sunday morning, but the rest of the clocks in the home, office or car will have to be changed by hand.

The shift to daylight-saving time also serves as a reminder to install new batteries in warning devices like smoke detectors.

Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, don't observe daylight time.

Starting in 2007, daylight-saving time was moved from the first week in April to the second week in March, with the hope that the extra three weeks of extended sunlight in the early evenings would help reduce the nation's energy budget.

"A study by the U.S. Law Enforcement Assistance Administration found that crime was consistently less during periods of Daylight Saving Time than during comparable standard time periods. Data showed violent crime down 10 to 13 percent. It is clear that for most crimes where darkness is a factor, such as muggings, there are many more incidents after dusk than before dawn, so light in the evening is most welcome."

Just to give you a crime related hook.
