Re: “Jason Collins’ No. 98 Jersey,” (2/28/14)
Jason Collins is to be praised for using his public platform to promote a more respectful, inclusive society. Collins’ enduring commitment to honor Matthew Shepard sends a clear message that the memory of Shepard’s tragic murder must be used as a vehicle in the fight against bigotry and hate-motivated violence. We call upon all Coloradans to take a lesson from Collins’ courageous leadership as we work together to make our community no place for hate.
