Get Involved with the CELL

One of the greatest challenges to global security today is the threat of terrorism. The CELL is confronting this threat through our renowned event series, national training initiatives and world-class exhibit. Here are three critical ways you can make an impact: 

The CELL brings together the foremost practitioners and thinkers on national security and terrorism from both sides of the aisle to debate the issues, educate audiences and engage with the public on what they can do to confront the threat of terrorism.

The Community Awareness Program (CAP) is an interactive training designed to provide citizens with the basic tools needed to recognize and help prevent terrorism and criminal activity. It was created in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the State of Colorado.

We are so thankful for our volunteers, without whose assistance the CELL wouldn’t be what it is. They remind us that our mission depends on the work of people who want to safeguard their communities.
