WTF Colorado's Busy Day
We started the morning of June 8 early with a drive from Longmont to Parker, arriving in time to march with the Douglas County Democrats in the Parker Days parade.The morning air was balmy, but by noon it was blistering hot!
Something about Parker Days made us decide we needed cowboy hats. But we wanted everyone to know we're the good guys!
So here are Craig Stevens and Chiu-Ki Chan, showing off their new white hats at an outdoor lunch counter along the Parker Days parade route. It was great to sit still and have a cold one after the long parade!
As luck would have it, the Western Conservative Conference was going on in the Denver Convention Center the same day as the Parker Days Parade. So after our stint volunteering in the Douglas County Dems booth, we jumped in our cars and headed north.
Here we are in our new White Hats and other WTF gear, posing with Cardboard Cory Gardner outside the Convention Center. Chiu-Ki Chan is at left, Craig Stevens, center, and Marcia Martin, right. That's Cory in front, holding the red sign, naturally. And in the background you can see the famous BLUE bear peering through the window, trying to catch a glimpse of Jeff Sessions.
WTF joined a well-organized protest by several resistance groups, including Moms Demand Action, Black Lives Matter, and Indivisible of Northern Colorado. Most of these dedicated activists were still at it when we threw in the towel and headed for home. Look for video of these events on our VIMEO channel, WTFColorado Blue Movies. Coming Soon!
