We did it, our first virtual meeting was a success! Here are the actions we discussed and some links to information so you can educate yourself if you were not able to attend.
ACTIONS WE CAN TAKE NOW
Support the BLM Protests. Review the slides above, anytime after 2pm there is probably a protest happening at the Denver Capitol. If you are looking for more info on protests and where to go, here are some people to follow on social media that posts updates about the protests:
@Tay Anderson has been posting things on Twitter and leading protests.
@elisabeth epps who works for CO Freedom Fund
Contact Denver Police Commissioner. Share your views directly via email to DPDListens@denvergov.org. If you are interested in joining a group led by Amen in a meeting with the police commissioner, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Support SB 20-217. Take action now to contact your member house and senate representative in Colorado with this simple form. Better still, call or email them directly voicing your support.

Here is a review of the meeting and information so you can educate more on the topics if you were not able to attend or if you want to share them with your network of activists.

2. Reviewed Obama's "How to Make this Moment a Turning Point for Real Change"
3. Reviewed a DAC member's real experience with the protests (and how to get involved). This also includes an overview of SB 20-217 (promoting law enforcement accountability and transparency.)
4. Agreed on some actions we want to take now, recapped below. We also discussed a potential virtual fundraiser, more info to come on that soon.
