Members of the diverse communities that belong to Mike Coffman's congressional district are organizing a rally and canvass action at Mike Coffman’s Aurora office at 5PM on August 10.
During a visit to DC this past month, black community members spoke with Coffman's staff about the disproportionate violence that people of color face, and asked staff where that issue was on Coffman's priority list. They were told by Jeremy Lippert, Coffman's Deputy Chief of Staff that violence against people of color is on the back burner, and that they don't see constituents coming to them with that issue.
Congressional district 6 is the most diverse in the state. And staff were literally at the table with people of color, dismissing them. We need to hold Coffman accountable and let him know that POC deserve representation.
We will hold a rally at 5PM so that Coffman can hear our voices. From 6-7:30 we will participate in a canvassing opportunity for Jason Crow, the democratic candidate running to represent this district in November.
