Michael DeHerrera police beating: Photos from today's call to action by LGBTQ community

Earlier today, we shared info about a press conference sponsored by the reps of the local LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community regarding publicity generated by the police attack on Michael DeHerrera and his partner, Shawn Johnson, as well as the resignation of Denver Manager of Safety Ron Perea. Westword photog Johnny Molfetta documented the event with a little help from his camera. Check out the shots below.
