Police Chief Town Hall Meeting

Denver Police Chief Robert White promised transparency and open dialogue with the community, particularly in his leadership appointments. Instead, we lost a high-rankling woman of color committed to improved community police relations, and the community has been denied an opportunity for input into recent leadership decisions that significantly impact communities of color.

Please join us in sending a message to Chief White that inclusion, transparency, fairness and gender equality are important values to Denver community residents and Coloradans throughout the state.
