About The Event

Denver is Rising again in 2014, this time for justice. Various nonprofits will be on hand to speak briefly, as the organizer desires strongly that this be a jumping off point for people to get involved locally. We will have a flashmob, community dance, speakers and performances. Featured speakers are Mayor Michael B. Hancock and LadySpeech Sankofa. Featuring special guest DJ, John Michael Wasmer. Special thanks to Angie Durlin, Meg Fossinger, QueenBe Yates, Christy Daniel and A'ra Lippitt Blair for their help with organizing.
