Tunes, Booze, and Schmoozing: CREEC’s Inaugural Event!

Last Thursday night, our awesome friends, co-counsel, and colleagues braved the cold to come out and support CREEC at our first-ever fundraising event at Museo de las Americas!  Thank you SO much to all of our sponsors who made the event happen, as well as the attendees who kept the party going late into the evening. We’d especially like to give a shout out to our speaker Bill Lann Lee, who spoke eloquently about his experiences with the Department of Justice and gave our work many kudos. Thanks, Bill! Without further ado, here are some of the party photos, taken by the wonderful Mary Lou Mobley of Foothills Fine Photography. The CREEC Team Our amazing live musicians – Cara Reimann and David Rynhart CREEC’s Board of Directors proving that lawyers and grant writers can totally cut loose Bill Lee (and interpreter Richard Blankis) in action! Schmoozing More schmoozing! Law students from DU  Again, a big thank you to everyone who came out on Thursday, as well as the amazing staff at Museo de las Americas who helped guide us through the process of hosting our first event as a non-profit organization! Hope to see you all...

  We’ve been trying to convince you to come to CREEC’s Inaugural Event with promises of listening to civil rights lawyers talk about civil rights.  That’s how we get our thrills.  But we thought some of you might prefer to hang out with this lady — and many other photos in the current exhibition at Museo de las Americas, the amazing venue for next week’s CREEC event. From the Museo’s website: Museo de las Americas in collaboration with The Mexican Cultural Center & Mexican Consulate of Denver announce the Fall exhibit, EL Brindis Remixed. The exhibit features photography from the 19th & 20th century taking a lighthearted . . . look at drinking within the Mexican Culture. Featured artists include: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Agustín Víctor Casasola, Gabriela Iturbide, Juan Rulfo, Gabriel Figueroa, Mariana Yampolsky and several other creatives who comprised Frida & Diego’s personal inner circle. In 2000 the exhibit was on display in Paris for the Millennium Celebration and will be featured for the final time in the United States at Museo this Fall. We are very lucky to be able to use this beautiful space — right in the middle of Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District.  Come for the art, stay for the civil rights!   Or vice versa! I think she’ll be there,...
