The Denver Public Library's Western History and Genealogy Department is documenting that historic march for future generations and is collecting photos, hats and protest signs; find out how to donate on the DPL's Facebook page. And that's just the start of the events that will continue the momentum of the march. (You can also watch the March on Denver on YouTube.) Ready to keep it going?

"Calling all activists, humans who care and anyone who wants to keep this momentum going," the Facebook post urges. "We marched. We made signs. We yelled in the streets. The work must continue. We will keep taking action to make our voices heard." A group of social workers, teachers and small-business owners are hosting a gathering to identify ways the community can maximize impact.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
