Denver District Attorney Candidate Forum

The Marade is the largest Martin Luther King Jr. march and rally in the United States. Every year, ACLU of Colorado staff, members, volunteers, and supporters march from City Park to Civic Center Park in a public display of unity toward the cause of racial justice and equality.

The day-to-day decisions of the Denver district attorney’s office have a huge impact on mass incarceration rates, criminalization of poverty, prosecutorial discretion, and holding law enforcement officers accountable in excessive force cases. At the Denver Justice Project DA Candidate Forum, community representatives will ask all four candidates to weigh in on these issues and more.

Bring your friends, your neighbors, and your family, and spend MLK Day with the ACLU of Colorado.
