Wednesday, May 25th 10:00 am- 11:30 am Mountain Time 

Presented By: Eileen McCarron, President, Colorado Ceasefire and Leslie Ervin, Board Member, Colorado Ceasefire

In 2019 Colorado enacted an Extreme Risk Protection Orders law (ERPO, or red flag). ERPO’s are used to temporarily remove firearms from a person who is danger to self or others.  The presentation will discuss who can file for an ERPO, how it is done, and what happens after an ERPO is approved. 

Eileen McCarron serves as president of Colorado Ceasefire Legislative Action, which was instrumental in initiating the ERPO legislation in Colorado and in getting it enacted.  Although her professional life was in the sciences and math education, she has worked as a volunteer on gun violence prevention since 1995. 

Leslie Ervin spent much of her adult life overseas running her Scuba Diving business in the Red Sea. She moved back to Texas in 2000 and opened a Pilates Studio in Austin while raising her four kids. After she lost her husband in 2013, she joined Texas Gun Sense and advocated for the Extreme Risk Prevention Order for 6 years in Texas. Leslie moved to Denver in 2020, joined the Outreach board of Colorado Ceasefire and has been advocating for the ERPO law in Colorado ever since.
