Hundreds rally for peace at Capitol

Posted

Hundreds descended on the state Capitol in Denver on Aug. 20 to rally for peace and oppose war in North Korea, the use of nuclear weapons, racial violence and terrorism in the United States.

“We’re here to speak truth to power in Denver,” said the Rev. Timothy Tyler of Denver’s Shorter Community African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The rally was organized by Denver-based activist Queen Phoenix and the Community for Unity, who describe themselves as “a peaceful community of neighbors focused on administrative, environmental, social and educational reform.”

Speakers included attorney Angela Bibens, an activist at the protests in Standing Rock, North Dakota; Jeanette Vizquerra, recently named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2017 for her activism surrounding immigration; and various poets and activists.
