Denver, CO – On Thursday evening, the Denver Justice Project hosted a community meeting geared toward reimagining policing and public safety.
“The point of this meeting is to hear from community members who have lived experience and or who currently reside in the most marginalized and impacted neighborhoods across Denver. As well as educate people in attendance and in the broader metro area around work being done by community to address the systemic injustices we are faced with.”Denver Justice Project
The Denver Justice Project was founded in 2015 through a community-led effort to recall then-Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey for his lack of prosecuting police officers who assaulted or murdered community members—including, but not limited to, Michael Lee Marshall, Dion Avila Damon, Paul Castaway and Jessie Hernandez.
Since then, the organization has been working with historically marginalized communities to address systemic racism through attempting to transform law enforcement and the structure of the criminal justice system.
