DENVER (KDVR) — More than 2,000 supporters have called Colorado lawmakers, demanding justice for the death of Elijah McClain.

A Change.org tool was launched on June 29 and allows participants to directly call lawmakers with a prepared speech, if needed. 

“We have the power to demand better from our lawmakers. A system which allows police to kill Black people with impunity is not working. We want change,” said Rundell. “Call to fight for a community that keeps everyone safe. Demand that Elijah’s killers be held accountable.”
