Denver’s oldest African-American church will honor a prominent area developer as one of six recipients of its Shoes of Justice Award.
Shorter Community African Methodist Episcopal Church presents the annual award to individuals and organizations in Denver for their social justice activism work. This year’s Shoes of Justice Award will be presented 10 a.m. to noon Sunday near Martin Luther King Jr. and Colorado boulevards.
The 2018 recipients include the executive director of The Center for Trauma & Resilience, Cathy Phelps; the president and CEO of The Urban Leadership Foundation of Colorado, Ryan Ross; the Denver Justice Project coalition; the progressive citizen advocacy group Indivisible Denver; north Denver community activist Candi CdeBaca; and the president of Zeppelin Development, Kyle Zeppelin.
“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized by the leading church in this community on social justice issues. Shorter’s history of resilience and community engagement is inspirational to me and my cohorts as we try to enact positive change in our work,” Zeppelin said in a statement.
