Briefing on Civil Liberties and Police Reform
Monday, February 15, 5:30 p.m.
Speaker:  Denise Maes
Public Policy Director for the ACLU of Colorado

 



Denise Maes is the Public Policy Director of the ACLU of Colorado. In that role, she oversees all legislative work that affects civil liberties at the State and local level. She is the primary person overseeing all legislative initiatives at the state Capitol during the legislative session.

In light of recent events, LWVD's Program Committee has asked Ms. Maes to comment on the problem of "selective policing," i.e. the need for equality of accountability in how police enforce which laws depending on the demographics of the people they deem to be breaking laws. How is the ACLU addressing the civil rights implications of under-policing as well as excess policing, particularly as this relates to the privilege, race and political leanings of perceived law-breakers?

Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Denver, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, has fought since the 1930s to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan. We neither support nor oppose candidates for office. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. The League:
  • Acts as a force to create positive, lasting change in our community
  • Empowers voters to protect their right to vote
  • Educates citizens and fosters dialogue on pertinent issues - from health care and climate change to openness in government
  • Strives to ensure that all votes are counted and all voices are heard
  • Works to preserve our constitutional rights
  • Partners with others to make democracy work
We believe that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship are essential for civic improvement. Our enduring vitality and resonance come from our membership, which is open to all people 16 years of age and older.
