Rally to Highlight Impact of the Revelations By the January 6 Committee and Ongoing Threats to Freedom to Vote
WHAT: On Oct 13th, the Jan 6th committee released the findings of their investigation regarding the events of the Jan 6th insurrection. Colorado, a progressive state and leader in voter turnout and election safety, should also lead the effort to demand accountability for the events on Jan 6th. We must come together to protect the integrity of our democracy and further elections. We are calling for an end to the ongoing attacks on our freedoms. We must protect our elections – the voters, the election officials, and a free and fair process.
In response, people in Denver will be gathering at the Colorado State Capitol on the West Steps on Friday October 28th at 12:00 PM MDT to highlight the local impacts of the hearing revelations, and fight ongoing threats to our freedoms and our vote, including efforts to pass anti–democracy legislation in state houses, run election denier candidates for office, and intimidate election officials.
This event in Denver, organized by Light Carrier, is one of more than 70 events planned nationwide between as part of the Our Freedoms, Our Vote actions organized by local grassroots leaders and Common Defense, Public Citizen, Indivisible, Our Revolution, and the Not Above the Law Coalition, which is made up of more than 150 organizations – ranging from legal, national security, netroots, and more – committed to protecting our democracy and fighting for the rule of law. At many of these events, veterans of CommonDefense.us will be re-committing their oath to the constitution, just as they did when they joined the military.
WHO: Light Carrier
WHEN: Friday, 10/28 at 12:00 PM MDT
