Statement on Buffalo and Uvalde Shootings

“Ten days after a horrific, hate-fueled shooting in Buffalo, NY, another community, this time in Uvalde, TX, has been devastated by an act of senseless gun violence. It is time for leaders at every level of government to step up and take action. Denver can, and must, lead on sensible measures to ensure safety in all communities. Together, we can be a model for other cities in the US”
