PFF was originally formed as Limited Government Forum in 2007 to help promote the ideas of individual responsibility and freedom in contrast to the tendency for people to turn to government for solutions to almost all social problems, aiming particularly at the Colorado Springs/El Paso County area. Click on the "Colo Spgs Model" tab for our vision. The name was changed from LGF to PFF in 2011.
We work with various local and national organizations to offer an annual event, Peak Freedom Festival (formerly called Limited Government Week) which will be held next on April 20, 2013 (see Econ Freedom Calendar tab for more information). PFF also offers periodic Food for Thought Luncheons. These are normally held at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, usually every other month.
PFF works closely with the UCCS Center for the Study of Government and the Individual (CSGI) and Cheyenne Mountain Civic Solutions (CMCS). The executive director of CSGI is Jim Null, senior professor of political science at UCCS. See www.uccs.edu/~csgi for information on LGW'07, '08 and '09. CMCS is headed up by Jon Stepleton and is engaged in promoting Stepleton's concept of "civil" versus "political" society. Programs of CMCS include the Pikes Peak Minority Opportunity Fund, "Bridges out of Poverty", an education initiative, an annual Institute for Civic Innovation, a Nonprofit Excellence Initiative and a project aimed at significantly improving the local business climate.
PFF also helps to promote a short course on economics and civics taught by Paul Prentice--Free People Free Markets--which is offered on a quarterly schedule by the Pikes Peak Economics Club (see www.PikesPeakEconomicsClub.com).
