As part of Beyond Columbine, our special report on the impacts of the 1999 school shooting, Rocky Mountain PBS invited people across the state to reflect on Columbine’s legacy.
RMPBS hosted community conversations on April 30 in five cities: Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Durango and Grand Junction. Scores of Coloradans were linked electronically, sharing their own stories of how Columbine impacted them. They participated in an interactive poll, sharing their impressions of safety within their communities, and how that compared across the state.
School administrators, medical professionals, students, public officials, media professionals, parents, and community members joined Rocky Mountain PBS staff and volunteers for the evening of conversation.
