On April 19, 2013, Governor John Hickenlooper signed an Executive Order establishing the Ludlow Centennial Commemoration Commission, which includes 12 representatives from a variety of perspectives.

The goals of the Commission and the larger statewide commemorative activities are:

  1. Raise awareness of the Ludlow Massacre and the events surrounding it.
  2. Explore the themes that underscore the Ludlow Massacre and the Colorado Coalfield War, including: economy, immigration, labor, energy, culture, geography, geology, and violence.
  3. Examine how this localized history impacted national and international labor relations and energy production, and continues to have modern-day relevance.
  4. Make available the historical and archaeological resources from the events of 1913-1914.
  5. Expand community outreach so that the stories of the individuals involved in these incidents can be heard.
  6. Reconcile the past and reflect on its relationship to the state of Colorado and the United States today.
