“We’re grateful to have received support from across Colorado for our campaign to bring change to Washington… Each and every person who chipped in recognizes that Colorado needs a new independent voice, a Senator who reflects our values and will work to bring people together and get things done on issues that matter to Coloradans — like expanding access and controlling costs for health care, and tackling climate change head on.”

John Hickenlooper, 2020 Senate candidate and former governor

“This racist incident reminds us of who we are as a campus community. Incidents like Sunday’s only reinforce the difficult work that we have yet to do.”
