Coloradans For Justice

The National Moment of Silence in Denver on Thursday was a success. We held a peaceful vigil and members of the Denver Ministry came and spoke. We sang. We linked arms. In silence, we remembered Mike Brown and then we spoke the names of the dead. We collected signatures. At the end, the crowd dispersed quietly.

I personally was very nervous about the event. I’ve never organized anything before, and neither had any of my co-organizers. I feel that for something that started in the middle of the night on Sunday, we did really well.

But that was a moment. We need a movement.

We are working on planning a march in Denver on Tuesday. More information is forthcoming.

In solidarity with the protestors in Ferguson, Missouri and in recognition that we cannot stop fighting police brutality, we have created Coloradoans For Justice.

  1. As someone who lives a scant 15 miles from the protesting and rioting and a retired law enforcement officer, I can only hope that your peaceful vigils will somehow help bring peace to our area. Mike Brown’s name and memory are being besmirched by the lawlessness of individuals who are using this incident as an excuse to steal, burn and destroy the community they profess to care about.
