The People Vs. _______ is back! (Sigue en espanol)

We the People have put Police, God, Children, and Retirement on trial and now we're challenging the most interesting minds in our community to prosecute or defend: VOTING

"Voting is our civic duty." "Voting changes nothing." "Voting is strategic." "Voting is mindless." "If you don't vote, you can't complain." "Voting is the opiate of the masses."

Where do YOU stand? Come hear the prosecution and defense, take part in the audience rebuttal, and then we'll decide who won by...um....well, we'll figure it out!

Prosecuting:
Anthony Grimes: Anthony is a pastor and activist. He founded the Denver Freedom Riders and is Director of Campaigns and Strategy at the Fellowship of Reconciliation. He creatively defended the police at our last People's Vs ____ and we expect a full on assault of Voting this time around.

Denise Maes: Denise is Public Policy Director at the ACLU of Colorado. She worked in the White House. Needless to say, she knows what's up with voting and with trials.

Aaron Goldhamer: By day, Aaron is a lawyer. By night, he's currently running for political office in Colorado, so get ready for some cognitive dissonance and some verbal fire.

Jice Johnson: Jice is a businesswoman, director of the Black Business Initiative, and helps run Shop Talk Live here in Denver. Voting might not stand a chance after she's done with it.

Defending:
Jeanette Vizguerra: Jeanette is one of our Reconstructionists in the community and has been a fighter for Justice for Janitors and Immigration reform. See her take on the efficacy of Voting.

Candi CdeBaca: Holy smokes, Candi doesn't mess around! Whether it's founding and running Project VOYCE or her Elyria-Swansea neighborhood association, when she defends, she does it with power. Voting has a friend in Candi.

Morgan Hartley: Morgan's experience is with elections and when he saw we were doing this he simply said, "I want in." Your wish is our command Morgan. Defend away.

Joe Szuszwalak: Joe is a superhero with Denver Elections. That's right: when voting is in trouble, it's "Super Szuswalak" to the rescue!

El pueblo contra _______ está de vuelta.

Nosotros, el pueblo han puesto de policía, Dios, Niños y retiro en la prueba
y ahora estamos desafiando a las mentes más interesantes en nuestra comunidad
para procesar o defender: Votación

"El voto es nuestro deber ciudadano." "El voto no cambia nada." "El voto es estratégica".
"El voto es sin sentido." "Si usted no vota, usted no puede quejarse."
"El voto es el opio de las masas".

¿Cuál es tu posición? Venga a escuchar la acusación y la defensa, participar en la
audiencia de refutación, y luego vamos a decidir que ganó por
... um .... bueno, nosotros lo resolveremos!

de Procesamiento:
Anthony Grimes: Anthony es un pastor y activista. Fundó los corredores Denver libertad
y es director de campañas y Estrategia en el Movimiento de Reconciliación. Él defendió
la policía creativamente en nuestra última Vs Popular ____ y esperamos un lleno
en el asalto de la votación en esta ocasión.
Denise Maes: Denise es Director de Políticas Públicas de la ACLU de Colorado. Ella trabajó
en la Casa Blanca. Ni que decir tiene, que sabe lo que pasa con las votaciones y con las pruebas.
Aaron Goldhamer: Durante el día, Aaron es un abogado. Por la noche, que está actualmente
en ejecución para un cargo político en Colorado, así que prepárate para la disonancia cognitiva
y un poco de fuego verbal.
Jicé Johnson: Jicé es una mujer de negocios, director de la Iniciativa de Negocios Negro,
y ayuda a dirigir Shop Talk vivo aquí en Denver. La votación podría no tener una oportunidad
después de lo que ha hecho con él.

Defensa:
Jeanette Vizguerra: Jeanette es una de nuestra Reconstruccionistas en la comunidad y ha
sido un luchador por la Justicia para los Conserjes y la reforma migratoria. Ver su toma sobre
la eficacia de la votación.
Candi CdeBaca: Santo fuma, Candi no lo hace perder el tiempo! Ya se trate de la fundación y
funcionamiento del Proyecto VOYCE o su asociación de vecinos Elyria-Swansea, cuando se
defiende, lo hace con el poder. La votación tiene un amigo en Candi.
Morgan Hartley: La experiencia de Morgan es con las elecciones y cuando vio que estábamos
haciendo esto simplemente dijo, "Quiero en". Su deseo es nuestro comando de Morgan.
Defender a distancia.
Joe Szuszwalak: Joe es un superhéroe con Electoral de Denver. Eso sí: cuando la votación está
en problemas, es "Super Szuswalak" al rescate!

SPOTLIGHT ON ENGAGEMENT

This isn’t a story about war, about the wounds—both visible and invisible—that soldiers are left to carry after war, or the trauma that goes hand in hand with being a soldier.  You won’t find details of battle or unsettling imagery in this tale.  This story is about strength and determination beyond the experience of war; this story embodies the power of self-identity as a veteran.  It’s a story of integrating the person that you once were with the person you are now...
