Jumoke Emery-Brown ran home this afternoon after his wife, Amy, found a pile of burned election flyers on their front porch and called him in a panic, he told Denverite. The two are parents and activists, and Jumoke Emery-Brown has been a leading voice on Amendment A, the measure to remove slavery from the Colorado constitution.
“Slavery is not a Colorado value,” the charred flyers stated.
