This Sunday hundreds gathered in Denver’s Civic Center park to create a space for peace, love, and support after this weeks election shocked half of the country.

People from different races, genders, sexuality, and religion joined together to stand in solidarity with one another. They demonstrated to one another that they will continue to fight for those whose lives have been marginalized.  The event, organized by the group Community Unity, was the second demonstration this week. While the group maintained that this was not an anti-Trump event, but rather a reminder that this community exists, and that these groups are not alone in their fight for equality.

The group stressed that our stories are not written for us, that we create our own story and we can make it happen. Protesters then wrote what they wished their stories would become and shared on an art installation.

Individual perspectives and diversity of our political spectrum is what makes this country great. I can only hope that with the division of our country brought to light, that we can begin to bridge the gap between one another. That we can unite for a country that benefits all humans, as well as, the Earth.

peace and love,

Josie
