Colorado turned out for the Martin Luther King Jr. "Marade" in Downtown Denver on Monday, despite the snow and cold.

Officials spoke out at the podium at the start of the day, but attendees spoke out themselves, without saying a word.

This pretty much says it all. #mlkjrday2016 #marade

Instead of quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s beautiful words today as I have every year, I want to use this space to recommit myself to the active resistance modeled by MLK, by John Lewis, by Rosa Parks, by Dr. Cornel West, by Dr. Vincent Harding. The current state of our government is not only deeply disturbing, but also has horrific and deadly implications for millions of people. I want to call our elected officials, even if I'm tired from work or from staying up until 2am writing a paper. I want to join national marches and protests, even if I'm exhausted from taking care of a family member 24 hours prior. I want to engage white friends and family members in important yet difficult conversations, even if I'm physically shaking from fear of possible conflict or confrontation. Because life will always get in the way if I let it and words are meaningless without action. • If you're looking for a way to begin actively resisting, join us in the Injustice Boycott and start completing the daily actions! This has been very helpful for me in knowing where to direct my efforts. http://www.injusticeboycott.com/ • #reclaimmlk #istandwithjohnlewis #blacklivesmatter #denver #marade

A bitterly cold day today. Will not lie and say that it was easy to attend (Imagine if Dr. King had stayed in his bed on cold mornings however). The Marade was energizing and full of positive energy. Glad I got to share it with my family and my DPL fam. #Marade #martinlutherkingday #dayonnotadayoff #service #denvermarade #denvermarade2017

Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. - Martin Luther King, Jr. #denver #mlk #marade #marade5280 #lovewins

We still fighting with you Martin. We still preaching about love and using it to put out hate πŸ’• love is infinite while hate consumes. Love will always win and always has. ❀

Proud to March with the staff and leadership of the ACLU in Colorado - but even more humbling to honor Dr. King on this day. #denvermlkparade #aclu #mlkday
