A religious rally against Donald Trump is rolling through Denver on Tuesday evening.
The Denver stop will occur from 7:30-9 p.m. at Denver Community Church's Uptown Campus at 1595 Pearl St. The event features author Nadia Bolz-Webber, a Lutheran minister and public theologian who was the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver.
The 50-state bus tour put on by Vote Common Good aims to lure religion voters away from the president. After Denver it moves on next to Utah, Nevada and California. The tour began in Iowa on Jan. 11.
The national tour is expected to culminate with a rally outside the White House on Nov. 3.
Vote Common Good collaborates with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, when the organization targeted 31 Republican incumbents.
“Trump’s misguided approach to ‘America First’ has caused many voters of faith to rethink their support for him,” Doug Pagitt, executive director of Vote Common Good, said in a statement. “If just 5% of faith voters move away from Trump, he doesn’t stand a chance in 2020.”
Pagitt pastors a church in Minneapolis. He rose to prominence in 2018 as he traveled the country by bus with messages pitting Trump campaign slogans against quotes from the Bible.
The group also will avail itself to Colorado Senate candidates for training on engaging voters of faith. Democratic Colorado Senate candidates Stephany Spaulding, Lorena Garcia and Michelle Warren will attend the event to receive training from Vote Common Good on how to engage voters of faith.
