And Westword will be on hand to cover the chaos.
I've been offered unique access to document some of the wilder and more harebrained disruptions that you'll be hearing about in D.C. over the next five days, from January 17 through January 21. The invite comes from the subject of my December profile piece, attorney Jason Flores-Williams, who is taking his brash style of litigation (he's the lawyer suing Denver in federal court over the homeless sweeps) to D.C. to shoot a pilot episode for a well-known television network in which he'll embed with activists resisting the new administration.
In preparation for the TV pilot, Flores-Williams rented a law office directly across the street from the White House. And after he sent out an e-mail offering pro bono legal representation to a national list of activist groups, his office is slated to be a staging ground for all sorts of fun, dangerous and outright insane acts of resistance. I'm going to watch how it all goes down.
In “D.C. Dispatches,” I'll share daily observations from the front lines. You can also expect to read about Colorado's influence at the inauguration, including interviews with the Colorado chapter at the Women's March on Washington on January 21 and other important things, like, you know, how many Colorado participants show up when 4,200 free joints are handed out at Dupont Circle on the morning of the Inauguration.
Check Westword tomorrow morning for Chris Walker's first dispatch from D.C.
