Here are five interesting facts about April 15 in Colorado history:

1. On April 15, 1920, the Colorado Anti-Discrimination League was founded in Denver, Colorado. The organization aimed to combat discrimination and prejudice based on race, color, religion, and national origin. The league played a major role in lobbying for anti-discrimination laws and supporting civil rights movements in Colorado.

2. In 1943, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that cities and their police officers did not have the right to detain military personnel on leave or furlough for violating local laws, unless their offense was directly related to military discipline or security. The ruling came after a lawsuit filed by a Marine who was arrested in Denver for overstaying his parking meter.
