Our Voice for a Fair, Responsible Criminal
Justice System in Colorado
The Criminal Justice Field is an area of expertise. Even though, scores of criminal laws are passed each year, few lawmakers and policy makers truly understand the impact of their actions.
Established in 1996, the Raptor Fund was created to ensure that the Voice of the Colorado Criminal Defense Community is heard by state legislators, administrators, and executive officers. Our goal is simple:
The CCDB advocates for a balanced criminal justice system that treats the accused and the convicted fairly and justly.
Our voice counter balances the rhetoric that policymakers hear from the law enforcement lobbyists and prison builders. Through the Raptor Fund, the CCDB employs and supports its experienced Legislative Liaison and Legislative Committee.
The Raptor Fund is a necessary but voluntary fund. Legislative and lobby expenses are extremely high and are not met by CCDB membership dues. Only through the generous contributions of members and supporters can the CCDB’s legislative and policy successes continue.
