Colorado Progressive Coalition & activist groups' dance party for voting, civic obedience (photos)

Westword photog Johnny Molfetta gets around. On the same day he took snaps of a drug-free-pledging kids at the Chatfield corn maze, he captured a tribute to civic obedience by Colorado Progressive Coalition and other groups at the Webb Building. The idea: to encourage folks to vote against ballot measures like Amendments 62 and 63. Check out his shots and captions below:
