DP Editorial: “Colorado should take a full step toward marriage equality” by Wellington Webb

“We cannot any longer face friends and family who are asking for equal protection under the law and tell them they are different. It is an indefensible position.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers maintains that somehow he must see the appeals on Colorado’s gay marriage ban through to the end because it is his job. The reality is quite different.”

Read more of former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb’s fantastic Denver Post editorial, originally posted on August 15: 



  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

  • Our membership has quadrupled in the last six months, making it possible to do more than ever to protect civil rights and civil liberties in Colorado. Thank you to all our new members, supporters, and donors, and the ones who’ve been with us for years.
