“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” — Lilla Watson (Murri)
The Denver Solidarity Network is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization of workers and tenants who empower one another through mutual aid and direct action. We are focused on listening and learning from our neighbors, so as to better understand and respond to one another’s needs. Through community gatherings, we share our experiences, meet people with similar struggles, and create strategies about how to move forward together. Our work is rooted in building a sustainable culture of resistance in the neighborhoods of Denver, in which folks find effective ways to address situations of high rents and low wages.
Since we started flyering in Denver, we’ve met people who have been evicted illegally, had their security deposits stolen by landlords, and their wages stolen by bosses. As a network, we are starting to address some of our neighbors’ struggles by organizing with a commitment to solidarity and mutual aid.
We meet every other Thursday at 7:30 pm at Hooked on Colfax Coffeehouse, 3213 E. Colfax Ave, Denver. Check the schedule to the right.
