Artists & performers who use their voice and platform for and with the movement to change hearts and minds Saturday & Sunday Panels featuring Denver Activists Saturday MONSERRAT ALVAREZ cityWILD

Monse is an outdoor educator from the South who works for a more equitable and inclusive Outdoors. Growing up in the South, she found inspiration in her communities and deeply integrated herself in community organizing. While attending NC State University, Monse was introduced to outdoor education as a professional career and since then has created ways to merge social justice with the

Outdoors. Saturday Monse Alvarez In 2015, Monse moved to Colorado to pursue her career as an outdoor educator. She is part of the national leadership for Brown Girls Climb, an organization led by women of color who aim to promote and increase visibility of diversity in rock climbing.

Saturday You can find Monse on the rocks, instructing with Women's Wilderness where she combines her love for rock climbing and affinity space for girls and women. She currently works full time at cityWILD where she combines her love for

the Outdoors, youth development, and social justice. Monse Alvarez Saturday KATY OWENS Black Lives Matter 5280 Katy grew up in St. Louis, but Denver definitely now feels like

home. After moving to Denver seven years ago for college, she fell in love with the city and knew she couldnt leave. Saturday Panel Katy Owens For Katy, loving a city means truly getting to know it, and being invested in the citys well-being as a whole. She grew up knowing and caring about a variety of areas of social injustices, but Ferguson was truly a

wakeup call for her. After going to Ferguson to participate in protests and activism, she continued working with a group in Denver that eventually formed BLM5280. Katy Owens Katy remains passionate about issues of racial and systemic oppression. She is also involved organizing around homelessness in Denver, advocating for alternative housing solutions and spending time

with the chronically homeless in Denver. She truly believes in the power of relationships, compassionate listening, empathy, and storytelling to change hearts and minds. Saturday Panel PAULA BARD, Photographer In the fall of 2015, just ahead of

Colorados winter, Denver sent the full force of its police department and SWAT team to destroy five tiny homes that our fellow citizens without homes had built north of downtown. Something in me just snapped: My God Denver, what a bully! Saturday Denver has over 6,000 people without

homes, and over 3,000 trying to survive on its streets. It is an ugly business. In 2012, Denver passed an urban-camping ban making it illegal for the homeless to protect themselves with any form of cover or protection from the elements other than clothing. Paula Bard I began walking the streets of my city where the homeless are trying to survive,

photographing the faces of those citizens that my city has abandoned. I began telling their stories and creating portraits. I began researching. I got involved. Saturday As a photographer, writer and lifelong activist these are the skills I bring to the table. Late stage capitalism and its companion, extreme inequality, have created a

full-blown humanitarian crisis. I cannot bear to look away. For about 5 years I photographed with Denver Copwatch, documenting police misbehavior. Last fall documented the water Protectors at Standing Rock, ND. Otherwise, I am a nature and bird photographer. Paula Bard

reconciliation projects in Denver and around the nation. He facilitates a citywide monthly racial dialogue that has been continuously active since 1997, the Second Tuesday Race Forum.

Sunday Harold Fields Harold earned a degree in civil engineering from Oklahoma State University, and spent over 30 years with IBM and the airline as a systems designer and programming manager. He grew up in Tulsa with the

survivors of the 1921 race riot as his teachers and mentors. This made a lasting imprint on him for seeking justice and civil rights. He went from designing bridges to building bridges over vast divides between people and cultures. He's part of a team that is planning a national truth and reconciliation movement that uses restorative justice as its foundation. He was deeply influenced by historians like John Hope Franklin and Vincent Harding to help us connect the dots from the past, through today's events, and to a future vision that we jointly construct.

Sunday Harold Fields As a social justice advocate, Harold is an accomplished leader, locally and nationally, who brings people together for dialogue and healing, said ACLU of Colorado Board Member Carolyn Love, PhD. Harold goes above and beyond the call of duty by consistently showing up in spaces to ignite conversations about difference. He advances civil rights by creating

spaces for people to understand the effects of hierarchy, separation, and injustice of all kinds and the resulting consequences. Harold facilitates the healing of wounds resulting from a history of racial intolerance and injustice. Sunday Saturday & Sunday Panels featuring Denver Activists
