Denver, CO – On October 4, Denver Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) joined a nationwide protest against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, which is scheduled for Saturday. The students gathered at the Auraria campus with signs reading, “Cancel Kavanaugh,” “Convict Kavanaugh” and “Stand with survivors.” Members also chalked the sidewalk with the same slogans, which remained long after the protest ended.

Many students as well as faculty members felt negatively about Kavanaugh and supported the protest. When asked what the protest was for, SDS member Kyle Burrows said that it was “to stand in solidarity with sexual assault survivors as well as condemn the patriarchal system that often prevents them from finding justice.”
