Coloradans For Responsible Wildlife Management

An animal liberation group called “Pro-Animal Future” has successfully collected the minimum number of signatures required to secure a spot on the ballot for the City and County of Denver’s November 5, 2024 election. This animal liberation organization’s initiative would, beginning July 1, 2025, prohibit the
manufacture, distribution, display, sale or trade of animal fur products in the City and County. This initiative goes too far. If approved by voters, the measure would:

Þ Prohibit many exhibitors from selling items at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS), potentially jeopardizing the Stock Show’s financial ability to remain in Denver. In 2023, the NWSS supported $171 million in net economic activity across Colorado.

Þ Severely impact the Denver March Powwow and the Indian Market & Southwest Art Fest, limiting their ability to attract vendors and jeopardizing their financial sustainability. The Denver March Powwow, alone, features 1,500 dancers from nearly 100 tribes from 38 states and three Canadian
provinces and hosts 170 vendors who sell a variety of Native American products.

Þ Ban the sale of many cowboy hats in the City and County of Denver, putting most of Denver’s custom and small business hatmakers out of business and costing jobs.


Þ Ban the sale of many flies and fishing lures used by anglers, impacting fishing shops, tackle stores, and fishing guide operations, many of which are small businesses, and negatively impacting Coloradans’ right to enjoy the outdoors and an activity they love.

Join “Hands Off My Hat Denver” to stop the ban!
